WORCESTERSHIRE'S Jack Haynes and Adam Finch are in the England under 19 squad for next month's two-Test series with South Africa.

Finch featured in three under 19s matches in last winter’s ICC World Cup in New Zealand which also involved club-mate Dillon Pennington.

But it is a first call-up for Haynes to complete a memorable few days.

He signed his first professional contract and made his senior debut in this week’s List A defeat to West Indies A at Blackfinch New Road.

The County had six players chosen for England under 19s in 2016 in Ollie Westbury, Zen Malik, Josh Dell, Ben Twohig, Josh Tongue and George Scrimshaw.

Academy coach Elliot Wilson said: “They were informed over the weekend by Jon Lewis, the under 19 head coach, that they would be involved in that series.

“The one-day squad will be selected in early July and I’m sure they will hope to be involved in that as well.

“We keep getting people asked to play which is really flattering and to get those two selected has been fantastic to see.

“Adam came back with some very positive experiences and feedback from the coaching team about the contribution he had made in the world cup.

“I'm really pleased for him to have more exposure to that environment over the next month.

"Fingers crossed he will get a lot out of the three weeks being away with the under 19s and come back to us in a better place to push for first-team recognition at New Road.

“He has signed a full-time deal with us from October 1. It was his last school exam this week and then he is pretty much with us for the rest of the summer and into the winter for next year.

“I wouldn’t be surprised, and I don’t have any real doubts, that the lad is going to go from strength to strength. He is such a good character.

“Jack has another year at school. He has performed to a level that justifies him being involved with some of his performances in our second team.

“He is eligible for the next world cup (2019-2020 winter) and has been identified from an early age as someone of high potential for the future.”
