SHERIFF Hutton Bridge cricketer Eddie Barnes has won a call-up to the England Under-17s squad.

The talented pace bowler will tour with the U17 age group squad in February, when they will play a number of matches against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.

Barnes was touring the West Indies with Sheriff Hutton Bridge on their annual end of season trip to Barbados when he picked up the message from selector David Graveney.

He is the second player from the Hunters York & District Senior League premier division club to be called up by his country this winter, following Matthew Fisher’s inclusion in the England U19 squad.

Barnes is the latest in a production line of talent progressing from the York & District Senior League into the professional game.

Other recent graduates include Will Rhodes (Stamford Bridge, Cottingham, Yorkshire and England U19), Jack Leaning (Heworth, York, Yorkshire and England U19), Karl Carver (Sessay, Yorkshire and England U19), Ben Coad (Studley Royal, York and Yorkshire), Matther Fisher (Sheriff Hutton Bridge,Yorkshire and England U19), Tom Kohler-Cadmore (Hornsea and Worcestershire), Lauren Winfield (Stamford Bridge, Yorkshire and England) and Jess Watson (Sessay, Yorkshire and England U19).

Sheriff Hutton Bridge's Caribbean trip was a success, with the club recording three wins from five matches.

Barnes top-scored with 140 runs in the series, while Jordan Grose was the leading wicket-taker.
