Former Lawrence Sheriff School student, Alex Phillips, has had an outstanding cricket season this year opening the batting for Leamington CC in the Birmingham and District Premier League.

He finished the season as the leading run scorer in the Premier Division, amassing 922 runs in 20 innings, with an average of 46.1.

The Premier Division includes the best cricket clubs from across the Midlands, the majority of players being contracted, overseas or minor counties players.

Alex scored three centuries, including two (125 and 106) against 2010 Premier League champions, Shrewsbury CC.

Alex hit a magnificent 131 against Wolverhampton to round off a truly brilliant season for the 20-year-old.

Alex is currently starting his final year Science at Loughborough University, studying Maths and Sports, and is a member of the Loughborough MCCU, one of six prestigious university academies in the country.

Building on the success of 2011, Alex is hoping to make his first class cricket debut in 2012.
