Henry Thornton's talent was identified at an early age when he was selected in the U/13 Cricket NSW Academy Program.
Several years later, the tall quick and hard hitting lower order batsman now finds himself with a NSW Blues Rookie Contract.
During the 2015/16 summer, Thornton was part of the NSW Metro team which won the U/19 Male National Championships, and he was subsequently selected in the Australian U/19 team for a series against England in Perth.
He was the leading wicket taker during the ODI section of that tour, snaring 13 scalps at 13.46.
Thornton also spent some of the off-season training at the Bupa National Cricket Centre in Brisbane but unfortunately, he missed the Australian U/19 team's tour of England through injury.
