A total of 997 runs in all competitions during 2014 earned Keaton Jennings the club's young player of the year award.

Jennings helped to inspire a convincing 309-run win over Sussex in June with a fine century, and would pass fifty on five occasions in four-day cricket during the summer.

One of his most significant innings' came in the successful Royal London One-Day Cup campaign. Jennings underlined his reputation as one of Durham's most exciting talents with a mature knock of 70 during a crucial final group game against Surrey.

Throughout his short career, Jennings has shown he has the mental qualities to be a high class opening batsman and is developing a strong partnership at the top of the order with Mark Stoneman.

Jennings was born in Johannesburg but has declared his intention to qualify for England. His mother hails from Sunderland and his father played for South Africa during the 1980's.

Aged just 21, he helped Durham secure the LV=County Championship title in 2013 with two centuries, including a maiden ton against Derbyshire.

A popular figure in the dressing room, Jennings is currently studying to become an accountant.
