Sumner has signed prolific Durham University batting all-rounder Ben Hall for their 2022/23 Christchurch Metro Cricket campaign.

Hall is a talented batting all-rounder (seam) from Derbyshire, England.

A hard-hitting right-handed top-order batter and slippery medium-pace bowler, Hall represented Derbyshire at under-17 level before heading to University in Durham.

Since relocating to the North East he has played his club cricket for Coal Aston in the Yorkshire Cricket Southern Premier League. He has been one of the 1st XI’s stand-out performers over the past 3-years racking up more than 1,000 runs averaging 40 plus alongside nearly 50 wickets at sub 20.

Courtesy of his club exploits he has trialed with Yorkshire County in a view to playing 2nd XI cricket alongside his Durham University commitments.

Hall is completing his final year (2022) at Durham University, where he is a member of the BUCS side.

Upon completion, he will head to New Zealand to continue his cricketing development having signed with Sumner for their 2022/23 Christchurch Metro Cricket Association campaign.
