Dillon’s return

Shropshire bowler Dillon Pennington visited his old school after his stand-out performance for England in New Zealand. The visit to Wrekin College in Wellington also saw two generations of Shropshire’s England cricketers come together as Dillon met up with former Shropshire captain Bryan Jones (both pictured). The two are former Wrekin pupils and they met at the school to take a trip down memory lane. Dillon has also been back to the school to give pupils some help with coaching and talk them through his success.

The 19-year-old from Shrewsbury recently signed his first professional contract with a two-year deal at Worcestershire. Dillon says, “Wrekin was integral to my development as a player and a young man and I have to say it has one of my favourite grounds to play on… although my first match in New Zealand was pretty amazing in some spectacular surroundings.”
