More First Class sporting achievement for Monmouth SchoolSeptember 23rd, 2015
Jeremy Lawlor (Shown second from left on the back row of this OMs team) has made his 1st Class professional cricket debut for Glamorgan County Cricket Club against Kent.
This is a remarkable achievement in his first season as a professional cricketer. He was selected for the LV Championship match after a number of good performances in the 2nd XI, which culminated in innings of 95 & 65 against Gloucester County Cricket Club at Bristol. He has done especially well to balance his professional cricket commitments whilst completing the first year of his degree course in Cardiff. Jeremy left school at the end of his A levels in 2014 with a string of school cricket records to his name, the most notable being the highest individual score for the 1st XI which was 203 not out. He was only stopped from scoring more in that innings by some bad weather. Ironically despite all his runs for school he does not hold the record for the most 1st XI runs in a season, as this belongs to his brother Chris who scored over a thousand runs in a Wisden schools season.
Jeremy is the third Old Monmothian to represent Glamorgan in the last 10 years, and the fifth within the last twenty. He has replicated the schools only Test match cricketer Steve James in opening the innings for Glamorgan. He has also become part of the 20th father son combination to represent Glamorgan, emulating the current Master i/c Cricket at Monmouth and his father.
