Alex Hepburn finished as Worcestershire Seconds leading run-scorer and wicket-taker in red ball cricket this summer.

The Australian born all-rounder, who last week signed a new one year contract with the County, scored 753 runs at an average of nearly 40 in the Championship and three-four day friendly matches.

Tom Fell was not far behind with 730 at an average of 48.67 including a score of 223 v MCC Young Cricketers at Barnt Green – the highest ever score by a Worcestershire player in the Championship.

George Rhodes, with 620 runs at 44.29 before his promotion to the first team, and Josh Dell (529) were the other players to top 500 runs.

Keeper Alex Milton, who signed his first professional contract with the County, Alexei Kervezee – who has since departed from New Road – and Ben Twohig also chipped in with 400 plus runs,

On the bowling front, Hepburn amassed 37 wickets at 25.25.

Spinner Twohig (26) and paceman Charlie Morris (20) were the other main contributors with the ball.
