Former pupil shines on county championship duty

Shenfield High School staff paid tribute to former pupil Matt Salisbury following his successful county championship debut for Essex this week.

Salisbury, 21, finished with five wickets in the match against Worcestershire at New Road, including a 4-50 haul in the second innings.

And although his efforts proved in vain in a 72-run defeat, teacher Garry Sapsford said the school were delighted with his success.

“Matt still holds the record of most county sports titles won during his seven years at Shenfield (17). He loved playing all sports and was dedicated to make every practice session possible,” said Sapsford.

“Earlier this year Matt gave up several hours of his time to come back to the school to help coach the youngsters in our cricket Academy.

“These young cricketers are all inspired by his success and will seek to emulate his progress in future years.

“Matt deserves all the success in his blossoming professional career as his attitude has always been so professional.

“We are very proud of his progress and are confident that there is a lot more to come from this fine young man.”

Salisbury’s first scalp was Ben Cox as Worcestershire made 291 in their first innings, but he was trapped lbw by Saeed Ajmal after going in at number three as a nightwatchman.

Essex were 88 behind on first innings, but Salisbury dismissed Matthew Pardoe at the start of the home side’s second innings and also accounted for Tom Fell, Alexei Kervezee and Ajmal, while Monty Panesar (5-23) wreaked havoc at the other end as Worcestershire were all out for 120.

Ajmal proved the difference, though, as his 7-19 haul included Salisbury for a cameo 19 runs and left Essex in a spin.
