ALL-ROUNDER Tom Curran has become the second Pemberton Greenish Academy graduate to join up with the Surrey professional squad this year.
Curran, the son of former Zimbabwe international all-rounder Kevin Curran, who tragically died last year, follows in the footsteps of Dominic Sibley, who was awarded a summer contract over the winter.
The 18-year-old's signing was announced last Friday by the county, following his recent stand out performances on the tour to Cape Town.
Curran will continue his education at Wellington College for the next two summers, where his two younger brothers also attend school thanks to a partnership between the club and the college.
Curran will also attend the Pemberton Greenish Surrey Academy, before joining the professional squad full-time in 2015.
The right arm fast bowler, was originally spotted playing schools cricket in South Africa by former Surrey captain Ian Greig, and played for Surrey at second XI and U17 level last season, playing in the side that won the ECB National U17 One Day Trophy against Durham.
He said: "I am very grateful for the opportunities given to me and my family by both Surrey County Cricket Club and Wellington College and now intend make the most of them over the next few years."
PG Academy director, Gareth Townsend, said: "Tom has the potential to be a very special player. I am delighted he will be with us for the next three years at least."
