Dee Jarvis - Plays in The Lara XI at Wormsley....

An afternoon to remember when Dee Jarvis (11 year old son of Tim Jarvis of Minster Lovell C.C.) was asked to field in a charity match between a Brian Lara XI and Warwickshire 1994 All Stars, then picked by former England bowler Matthew Hoggard to bowl the penulimate over, and what an over that was, when he got a hat-trick and was awarded Man of the match and presented with a signed shirt. Dee Jarvis represents Oxfordshire Under 11's as well as captaining Minster Lovell Under 11's.
We can look forward to great things happening with this talented youngster.
