Tom moved to King’s College from the Midlands in September 2015 and soon after joined the Somerset Academy.

The following summer he scored runs and kept wicket with considerable success and was a key member of the Somerset side that competed in the Second XI Finals Day at Arundel.

In 2017 Tom grabbed his chance and made his senior debut in the NatWest T20 Blast away game against Middlesex during which he claimed a leg side stumping to remove Dawid Malan off Michael Leask.

Tom also represented England Under 19s in their series against India in 2017.

At the end of the 2017 season Tom signed his first full two year contract with Somerset.

During 2018 Tom made both his List A and Championship debuts for Somerset and is spending his winter playing Grade Cricket for South Perth.

Tom enjoyed an amazing 2019 season, in which he scored a maiden T20 and List A hundred. He won Somerset’s White Ball Player of the Year, the PCA Young Cricketer of the Year and the coveted Cricket Writers Club Young Cricketer of the Year Award. His performances attracted huge public attention and was rewarded with an international debut against New Zealand in November 2019.

Tom has since played 20 games for England across the T20 and ODI format, scoring a best of 72. He has also starred in several global T20 franchises including Kolkata Knight Riders, Brisbane Heat and Quetta Gladiators.

Tom continues to be a formidable batsman and a vital member of the Somerset top order.
