Dan Houghton called up to England U19 squad
Lancashire Academy bowler Dan Houghton has been called up to the England Under 19 squad ahead of the Second four-day Test Match against India U19s in Nagpur, starting on the 21st February.
The right handed bowler from Ormskirk made his Lancashire Second XI debut against Leicestershire (1/17 and 1/18) in 2015 and currently players for Rainford CC.
Gary Yates said after Houghton's selection, "Dan is naturally delighted to receive the call-up and we wish him well if he gets the opportunity to play in the final test.
"He has worked really hard over the last 18 months since he's been in the Academy set-up and his selection into the England U19 squad is thoroughly deserved."
Houghton, who is part of the Lancashire Academy squad currently on a ten-day tour of Mumbai, was watched this week by former England fast bowler Jon Lewis, currently Assistant Coach with the England U19 squad.
