Kent Cricket Academy graduate Sam Weller has been appointed captain of Oxford MCC Universities for the 2015 season.

The 20-year-old Chislehurst-born bowler signed professional terms with Kent last year after impressing for the second XI and academy squad.

He studies at Oxford Brookes University and played for the MCC Universities combined XI last summer.

The MCCUs are based in Cambridge, Cardiff, Durham, Leeds, Loughborough and Oxford, and incorporate a total of thirteen institutions. They offer hundreds of courses for students of all academic levels, and some of the best coaching and facilities available anywhere in the country.

The aim of the MCCUs is to give talented young cricketers the chance to receive top-level coaching and playing opportunities whilst furthering their education.
