Laurie Evans - a name to watch?

Perusing the close of play scorecards from the County games, I noticed that all-too-rare occurence, a UCCE side not getting completely stuffed by a county side (sometimes largely comprised of reserves). Durham UCCE's 298 for 6 against Lancashire includes 133 not out by Laurie Evans, a 19 year old who also played for the Surrey 2nd XI last year. This is his second first class match, in his first (ten days ago) against a pretty much full Nottinghamshire squad he scored 23 and 63. Not a bad start to the season.

Could be a name to watch, if you're a Surrey supporter.
