Tom Fell makes his maiden first-class century for Worcestershire

Published by Oakham School on Tuesday 1st of July 2014

Old Oakhamian Tom Fell has made his maiden first-class century in his first full season playing for Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

He made the century during a match against Leicestershire. 'We are delighted to see him make his century,' says Director of Sport Iain Simpson. 'He is the best batsman we have seen to date at Oakham, since our records began in 1884. During his time at the School he scored seven centuries more than any other Oakham batsman.'

He almost made his maiden century in his first half-season of playing professional cricket, reaching an impressive 94 not out v Kent when rain stopped play.

Tom left Oakham two years ago after captaining the 1st XI cricket team for two seasons (2011 & 2012) and breaking all of the School's batting records. He holds the highest aggregate of any Oakham batsman since 1884, having scored 3463 runs in his four seasons in the XI 2009-12, at an average of 60.75.

As well as playing for Worcestershire CCC, Tom also played in all matches for the Oxford MCC Universities X1 in 2013 whilst studying at Oxford Brookes.
