THE Devon Lions programme starts tomorrow (Sunday) with an away game at Halesowen against the Warwickshire Academy.
The Lions is Devon’s development side and seen as a stepping-stone from under-17 county cricket to the senior side.
Players who have slipped through the youth net, but flourish in league cricket, can work their way into the Devon set-up via the Lions.
South Devon captain James Allen, an off-spinning all-rounder, and Hatherleigh pace bowler Dan Fogerty have both been selected via the league route.
Devon: G B Allen (Torquay), H J Kerton (Plymouth), R A Mawdsley (Heathcoat), H J Sargent (Exeter), L Stephenson, C Cabburn (both Heathcoat), D M V Fogerty (Hatherleigh), M J Petherbridge (Plymouth), J Degg (Plympton), A J Causey (Bovey Tracey), J A T Khan (Exeter), J B Allen (South Devon).
