DORSET officials are thumbing the record books to find out if Scott Currie will tomorrow become the county's youngest player in MCCA Championship cricket.

The former Poole Town medium-pacer is set to make his bow when Chris Park's troops travel to Wiltshire for their second Western Division fixture of the season.

Currie, who plays for Hampshire Academy in the Southern Premier League, will be aged just 16 years and 47 days when the first ball is bowled at Corsham CC (11am).

Skipper Chris Park said: "Scott is a very exciting cricketer. He's already 6ft 3in and has the potential to be a very good fast bowler.

"He bowls line and length very well and I like the control he has, so he certainly deserves his place in the squad."

Currie is part of an inexperienced Dorset side which includes debutants Ed Nichols and Alex Eckland, while Bournemouth teenager Dom Clutterbuck is also included.

Nichols is set to open the batting with Sam Collins, who has featured for the county side on just one previous occasion. Gordon Whorlow and Josh Digby are both unavailable.

Dorset: Nichols, Collins, Porter, Webb, Naik, Park, Woodruff, Wolstenholme, Currie, Clutterbuck, Eckland.
