At the start of the 2019 season I published the second edition of Hampshire County Cricketers which was of course out-of-date as soon as that season started. Over the winter I plan to publish on here updates of all the players who have continued playing with Hampshire 2019-2021, plus all the new players, in all formats.

I’ll probably just do one or two each week and will be pleased to get any comments or additional information. I am considering publishing the whole list as a supplement at the start of next season – same format as the Kyle Abbott booklet.

The book was alphabetical, so here we go with the first (A) entry:

Albert, Toby Edward (T20) born Basingstoke, 12 November 2001. He is a right-handed batsman who made his debut for Hampshire in two T20 matches in 2021, both against Somerset, scoring 13 & 5 (semi-final). He played also in the same season for Berkshire in four matches in the Minor Counties Trophy, having played for them in junior matches before his first season for Hampshire under-17s in 2019. He played first for Hampshire’s Academy in 2018 and in club cricket for Finchampstead from 2019. He made his Hampshire 2nd XI debut age 19 in April 2021 and played in seven matches in the side that won their Championship, with two half-centuries and a highest score of 93.

His figures for Hampshire:

T20: 2 matches; 18 runs at 9.00; HS 13.

I think there are 24 from Albert-Turner so one-a-week would take about six months.

Nice to start with a Hampshire born player!

Yes, I thought that. I hadn’t realised previously.
