Cornwall's Rising Stars

Cornwall's Rising Stars

Cornwall have a rich cricketing history, and recently two more high potential young players have come through their ranks with big futures.

Lewis Goldsworthy has played for Cornwall from the U10’s through to the senior team. During his rise to prominence, the 19-year-old was picked up by Somerset Academy whilst continuing to play for his home county. The right-hand batsman whom also bowls slow-left arm, played a key role with England U19’s in their 2020 World Cup efforts, and made his senior Somerset debut at the back end of the summer in the T20 competition. He’s already registered a top score of 38no with the bat and taken 5 wickets at an average of just over 17 in his three matches to date.

Joe Philips will be looking to follow Goldsworthy’s progress. The 16-year-old made his senior Cornwall debut this summer, scoring 34 off 79 balls, having played through the age groups for the NCCA side. A strong Bunbury Festival at U15 level put him firmly on the radar, with Gloucestershire signing him up into their academy. He will no doubt be looking to further impress and push towards a senior county debut soon.
