Tom Alsop hit his maiden first-class century against Surrey at The Oval in 2016 to encourage the belief that he could make the grade at Hampshire as a top-order batsman. His breakthrough innings was tinged with sadness as he dedicated it to his fellow Hampshire opening batsman, Michael Carberry, who had been an early influence on his development at the Hampshire academy, and who had been diagnosed with cancer in mid-season.
Alsop struck more than 1200 runs in all formats in 2016, particularly productive in 50-over cricket where he averaged 54. He was called up for the England Lions training camp in Dubai.
Alsop, who also has the ability to keep wicket, graduated through the Hampshire youth system. His first-class debut came at the end of the season and also played in the final match in Cardiff where Hampshire clinched promotion. That summer he also impressed for England U-19s with a series of strong performances against South Africa and had further experience against Australia the following season.
