DARWEN'S brilliant wicketkeeper-batsman Alex Davies is in line to make his Lancashire one-day debut against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay on Sunday.

Davies, a pupil at QEGS, gets his chance because Gareth Cross is suffering from a slight calf strain and is being rested.

Davies, who turns 17 next week, is a regular member of the Lancashire Colts team and is also involved with the England U19 set-up.

During the course of this season he has scored more than 600 Northern League runs for the Towers.
