ALEX ALLEN has become the latest member of his family to play at the County Ground in Bristol.
The 13-year-old from Thornbury was part of the Gloucestershire under-13s side that beat Wiltshire.
Allen, a left-arm spinner, bowled eight overs and took 1-16 against a good Wiltshire batting side, helping Gloucestershire win the game well.
This is Allen’s second year in the county squad and he is enjoying a very successful season with the ball.
However, it was his first appearance at the County Ground and he was supported throughout the day by his grandfather David Allen, the former England and Gloucestershire off-spinner, and his great uncle John Allen, who played for the county’s second team.
