Henry Mountford has a batting average of 201 for his school, Denstone College Preparatory School at Smallwood Manor, this year. He has scored three fifties, with a highest score of 71* and has only been dismissed once. His record for Staffordshire is even more impressive – he has passed fifty on two occasions and against Nottinghamshire he recorded his first century, 101*. He has yet to be dismissed at county level this season. He is only 11 years old.

Henry started playing cricket as a six year old at Stone SPCC in Staffordshire, when he made his debut for the U9 side. In the past five years has also played for U11 and U13 XIs and has represented Staffordshire at District and County Levels for the last four years, having represented Staffordshire at a district level when he was just eight years old.

At County Level, he was nominated as Batsman of the Festival at Repton County Cricket Festival and this season he has won Batting and Bowling awards at his own group levels of U11 and U13.

Not surprisingly, in his time at Denstone College Prep School, he has been an invaluable asset for the school team, as well as playing for the County U11, for which his first three innings he scored 55 not out, 71 not out and on 6 July, 105 not out, contributing to an impressive batting average of 210 runs.

Next term, he will be going to Denstone College with a sports scholarship, where alongside cricket, he is also a keen rugby player and swimmer. His coaching influences include Ian Trott from Denstone College where Henry has benefitted from one-to-one training, and James Dawson, a constant in his cricketing life so far, Head Coach from Stone SPCC.
