Worcestershire Seconds launch their T20 campaign tomorrow with two matches against Yorkshire at Weetwood (11.30am and 3pm).
Paceman George Marshall – a member of the Academy pathway – will make his Seconds debut
The 18-year-old, a pupil at Bromsgrove School, plays for Bromsgrove CC in the Birmingham League.
Marshall was part of the Worcestershire Under-17 side which competed in the Royal London One-Day Cup and in last week’s trio of games with Ireland Under-19s.
Another pathway player – batsman Joe Miszkowski – is included in the Seconds squad and will gain valuable experience in the 12th man role.
All-rounder George Rhodes returns to the Seconds after recovering from a neck injury.
The Seconds will also take on Northamptonshire in two T20s at Kidderminster on Thursday (11.30am and 3pm).
