A left handed batsman of some elegance, Tom was a prolific run scorer in the Kent youth set up.He cites Chris Stone as a major influence on his development: "I suppose you could say Stoney was something of a father figure for me when i was younger, he calmed me down, I was a bit wild back then". He has put cricket on the back burner recently, concentrating on selling delicious sandwiches in Canterbury. His other passions include Warhammer and golf, although his game needs work.
