England 12th man honour for two ex-Leek players


LEEK Cricket Club are enduring a miserable season in the North Staffs and South Cheshire League Premier Division – currently third from bottom of the table.

However, the Highfield-based club at least still has something to proudly shout about.

Two of their former young stars, wicketkeeper/batsman Alex Mellor, 26, and all-rounder Alex Thompson, 24, now with county championship Warwickshire, have been on 12th man duties for England.
