Jake Lintott
#1
The club are giving ANOTHER trial to a spinner - Jake Lintott, who is playing for the Seconds in their two T20 matches against Worcester today.  He's a 26 year old Left Arm spinner from Taunton, who has been playing Minor Counties cricket for Dorset & Wiltshire.  However, he has played T20 cricket for 2 first class Counties - Hampshire in 2017 and Gloucestershire in 2018 (taking 2 for 26 in one match).

By my count, that's 4 (relatively experienced) spinners we've tried out already in the Seconds this season (Azeem Rafiq, Zafar Gohar, Blake Coburn and now Jake).  We MUST be looking to get someone in soon ?
You can take the boy out of Atherstone, but you can never take Atherstone ........... !

5 spinners have been run out now for the Seconds - Yates is playing in their Trophy game against Durham today as an 'All Rounder' - (as Captain) bringing himself on to bowl 8 overs of Off Spin (and taking 2 for 41) !

Lintott has played for Warwickshire 2nds before in 2013 when Dougie Brown was in charge I believe.

I think he is definitely worth persevering with, he looked very promising in the T20 matches at Barnt Green.

Good couple of days for Lintott, 10 wickets in the match (2 5fers) and a solid 50 in an innings victory for Wiltshire over cornwall. With school finished and Blast coming up he seems to be firing well now - good timing?.

You're right muppetdodger, Jake is back in the Seconds team - for the 2 x T20 games against Derbyshire today.  Interestingly, both him and Agar are playing (2 left arm spinners) - he got 1 for 24, Agar got nothing!
