Luke Stoner-Lewis scored a record 199 not out for the Kent Physically Disabled Cricket team against Middlesex at the weekend.

The youngster posted the highest ever individual score for his side – from just 119
balls – hitting 21 fours and six sixes as he played a captain’s innings.

The skipper contributed the majority of his team’s runs as Kent scored 256 yet still lost by 91 runs at Hampstead Cricket Club.

Stoner-Lewis – who also plays for Mersham – was one of the youngsters honoured as the Ashford Leisure Trust launched their 2015 Talented Athlete Programme at the Julie Rose Stadium just last week.

The 15-year-old is set to attend a two-day training camp with the England Physically Disabled Cricket team at Malvern College, Worcestershire, where he will take part in 40-over and T20 action against other members of the squad.

He was also selected as part of the South East Regional Performance Squad last October.
Stoner-Lewis has Perthes disease and can use a runner when batting as he has no left hip bone.

As well as opening the batting, the Willesborough youngster is also a spin bowler.
