HUNTINGDONSHIRE cricketer Jon Carpenter attended MCC Young Cricketer trials at Lord's.

MCC head coach Mark Alleyne said afterwards: "He is without doubt a talented cricketer with an unflappable temperament and maturity beyond his 16 years.

"His performance was very good on the day and I am likely to be inviting him back during the season for further opportunities."

Carpenter is continuing his winter training programme at Leicestershire County Cricket Club and last season was a member of the U16 London and East Representative side that won the national festival at Loughborough.
