Tom Smith is an exciting cricketer who enjoyed representative success throughout his glittering career. An explosive batter and tidy off-spinner, to date Smith’s highlight was his List-A debut for Glamorgan (July 2016) against the touring Pakistani A side, that said, it’s worth mentioning his senior debut for Gloucestershire in their friendly match at Sophia Gardens against Glamorgan in April 2018 and his match for the MCC at Lord’s against Nepal during the Marylebone Cricket Club Triangular Twenty20 Challenge in July 2018.

Smith was a stand-out junior cricketer who represented Gloucestershire at every age group level (U12-U17). He skippered Gloucestershire to the Under-17 National Trophy in 2013 and, courtesy of his remarkable run-spree (642 runs in 7 innings, including 5 hundreds and 1 fifty), was awarded the ECB Yorkshire Bank Under-17 Player of the Year. He was a Gloucestershire EPP player since the age of 12, made his 2nd XI County cricket debut at 15, then joined the Academy at 16.

In 2012, Smith broke a long-standing club record, by becoming the youngest Welsh League centurian, hitting 119 for his local club, Chepstow, against Abergavenny (a record previously held by former Glamorgan/England A batter Adrian Dale). Smith captained Clifton College 1st XI aged 16 and holds the limited-overs record for the highest individual score (199*).

He spent 3 seasons (2014-17) on contract with the MCC Young Cricketer’s and, in 2015, scored the fastest representative T20 hundred in history, bringing up his 100 from only 29 balls against Kent 2nd XI (he finished on 107 from 34 balls). In the same year, Smith won the prestigious IRK Maclaren award for the YC’s. He was then a late-call up to the MCC squad (to replace Kumar Sangakkara) for the Emirates T20 v Yorkshire in Dubai.

Glamorgan signed Smith in 2016-17 and courtesy of his success for the 2nd XI, he was rewarded with his List A debut against Pakistan A in July 2016. At club level in the same year, he was the South Wales Premier Cricket League’s (Premier Two) leading run-scorer (634 runs at 57.64), despite playing only 11 matches. He struck 2 belligerent hundreds, including a double hundred for Panteg against Pentrych. His 200 came from only 113 balls, including 28 fours and 8 sixes. His other ton (138), against Carmarthen Wanderers, was scored in military fashion by comparison, from 116 balls.

On the other side of the World, Smith has also excelled in Australia, playing club cricket in the Southern Bayside competition for Bonbeach for the past 6 seasons. After a modest 2015/16 season, Smith returned with a bang in 2016/17, hitting another double ton in Round One against Murrumbeena. His incredible 211 not out included 16 fours and 15 sixes. Smith finished the 2016/17 season with 634 runs at 48.77.

He topped the Cricket Southern Bayside Championship Division run charts, ahead of County batter Christian Davis (Sussex) and Ian Cockbain (Gloucestershire), and was awarded the “Batter of the Year” award, alongside being named in the “Team of the Year”. Smith has returned to Bonbeach over the past three seasons with success, skippering the club to their maiden Premiership, which they replicated the following season. He was named in the team of the year for the third year in a row. Throughout his tenure, Smith has racked up 3,028 runs at 29.69 alongside 162 wickets at 18.12.

Smith is an incredibly talented cricketer, who returned to England in April 2018 and was immediately picked up by Gloucestershire, playing a senior match against Glamorgan, followed by 4 2nd XI outings. He also turned out in a solitary 2nd XI match for Glamorgan, played club cricket for Corsham in the West of England Premier League, and represented Wales in the various Minor County matches this summer, namely all 8 matches in the Unicorns T20 Championship, 3 Unicorns Championship and 1 Knock-Out match.

He returned to Corsham for a second stint in 2019 and skippered the side in WEPL's Premier 2 (Glos/Wilts) campaign. He was a stand-out in the league, finishing inside the top 4 run and wicket-takers.

An incredibly talented all-rounder - at the point of writing Smith boasts 40 plus career hundreds, including 4 County 2nd XI (3 Championship, 1 T20) and 10 Gloucestershire age-group tons.

A precocious talent, Smith has been residing in Australia throughout COVID and is on the verge of securing his residency.
