Thomas aiming for full disability side

GOMERSAL wicketkeeper Liam Thomas, having rejoined the club from Scholes for this season, missed out on his side’s win over Bankfoot last week after being called up for the England Physical Disability side’s training camp.

Thomas, pictured, has already represented the Physical Disability ‘Lions’ side but the head of the ECB’s Disability Cricket, Ian Martin, insists he wants Liam to be involved in both the Lions and the full England side training.

Martin said: “Liam is a very talented cricketer. He has had a couple of years out, his own decision, and we obviously found a replacement, but he is now involved again and keen to win back his place.

“We are meeting up every month or so as part of our preparation for the tour of Bangladesh in October and November, and Liam is in contention for that.”

Thomas, who has an artificial leg, helped Scholes to the runners-up spot in the Bradford League Second Division last season with 23 catches and 10 stumpings, while his eight not outs in 10 innings left him with an average of 60 with the bat.
