THREE Worcestershire Academy players have earned their first call-up for the Super Fours this week at Loughborough's National Performance Centre.

Ed Bragg, Pete Clark and Henry Cullen are in the Midlands team for the under 17s equivalent of the Bunburys.

The trio have been members of the 2018-2019 academy intake at Blackfinch New Road.

After a training day they will take part in T20 and 50-over competitions against London-East, the North and South-West.

A fourth County player in spinner Josh Dickenson was also selected but has had to withdraw due to a fractured finger.

Worcestershire have been well represented at the Super Fours in recent years with current professionals Josh Tongue, Adam Finch, Jack Haynes and Ben Twohig among those who have participated.

Clark is a top-order batsman and left-arm spinner from Shrewsbury School and Shrewsbury CC.

He has led the under 17 academy side this summer and turned in a series of impressive performances.

Bragg has featured in a sizeable slice of second XI cricket this summer.

He plays for Dumbleton and is an all-rounder who has enjoyed a successful 2019 campaign.

Wicketkeeper Henry Cullen plays for Barnt Green and has been part of the academy under 17s.

He has worked with former England and Essex keeper James Foster along with Ben Cox and Alex Milton at Blackfinch New Road.

Meanwhile, academy players Rehan Edavaleth and Ollie Walker have been selected for the Best Of Bunburys side on August 26 and 27.

They will play against West Indies under 15s and also for the North against South in two 50-over games at Loughborough.

Edavaleth and Walker were among four Worcestershire players who participated in the recent Bunburys tournament at Felsted School along with Reeve Evitts and Harry Cooke.
