Persistence certainly paid off for Lewis Hill. He graduated from the Leicestershire CCC Academy and churned out lots of runs for Lutterworth, Unicorns and our Second XI before joining the staff in 2014.
The Leicester-born cricketer batted and kept wicket well for the Second XI throughout 2013 and carried out a similar role in 11 List A appearances for the Unicorns.
Hill made a terrific 87 against a strong bowling attack in an intra-club pre-season game and was a consistent performer for the treble-winning Seconds. The 24-year-old played in the first team against India and Leeds-Bradford MCCU and although neither of those were first class games, they were good experience for him.
