Myerscough cricket tutor, Ric Gleeson, has been called up to the England T20 squad for the upcoming series against India.
Ric, who combines his work at Myerscough’s Preston centre with a white ball playing contact with Lancashire, is the leading English wicket-taker in this season's Blast with 20 wickets, and joint-second overall.
In total, Ric has taken 70 wickets in 64 domestic T20 matches, including a career-best 5-33 against Worcestershire Rapids in this season's competition.
The first T20 is on Thursday, 7 July.
We’d like to wish Ric the very best of luck in the series!
After coming through the Lancashire Academy system, Ric made his debut for the Red Rose in 2018, joining from Northants, and playing in all three formats – First Class, List A and T20.
His form earned him a call up to the England Lions squad in early 2018, making his debut against the West Indies before featuring in the North-South series in Barbados, before receiving another Lions call-up early in 2020 for the series in Australia and has earned contracts in franchise cricket around the world, namely with Melbourne Renegades in Australia’s Big Bash and in the T10 League.
Now, Ric is combining playing, where he’s focusing on white ball cricket, with coaching, and his new role as a lecturer in Cricket Studies at Myerscough’s Preston centre.
Places are still available for September 2022 entry.
