Brett’s Hard Work

Hours of hard work in the nets between father and son was the key to Brett D’Oliveira’s match-winning haul of 8-56 for Ombersley Seconds against Studley in Birmingham League Division Three.

Brett and his father, Worcestershire’s academy director and former County all-rounder Damian, have been honing the young leg-spinner’s action and Saturday’s fine return was a perfect reward for the practice.
