Lloyds keep Suffolk captaincy in the family

SIBLINGS George and Rosie Lloyd have achieved the unique distinction of being appointed as captains of the Suffolk Under-13 boys and girls’ sides respectively.

George, 13, and 11-year-old Rosie are both member of Easton Cricket Club, near Framlingham, which continues to maintain its reputation for coaching excellence at all levels and especially in the junior sections.

A total of 25 of the club’s junior members have been awarded district and county places in the Suffolk squads this season, including the brother and sister combination of George and Rosie.

John Taylor, chairman of the Junior section, said: “Much of the credit for this success goes to Jolyon Kimmerling, the club’s development officer, who has worked tirelessly to promote cricket to the younger generations.

“The high number of Easton players in the Suffolk squads reflects the quality of the coaching and facilities that we can offer at Easton. We are very lucky to have some of the best coaches in Suffolk as well as fantastic facilities to go with a very picturesque ground.

“We have just under 100 junior members and still have a few spaces in the Under 11 and Under 15 age groups.
