Who is Adam Seymour?
Batting at number eight, Seymour scored 102 not out at the age of 16 for Essex Second XI against their Middlesex counterparts at South Hampstead. Essex II, however, lost the game by one wicket. He made more than 20 further appearances for Essex II and Essex Under-25s, the bulk of these in 1985, but never even reached 50, let alone 100.
Seymour was given his first-class debut by Essex in May 1988, when he was chosen for the match against Cambridge University at Fenner's, hitting 33* down the order in a comfortable Essex victory. This was the first first-class game to be umpired by Vanburn Holder. He made no first-team appearances in 1989, but played some very good innings at Second XI level, including 168* and 42* against Lancashire II in September.
His next chance in the first team came in 1990, when he made his List A debut against the Zimbabweans at Chelmsford; he opened the batting with John Stephenson, but made only 6 before falling lbw to Eddo Brandes. Two days later Seymour played in a first-class game against Cambridge at Fenner's, making 28 and 89. He was soon out of the team again, though, and was not recalled until June 1991, when he made 67 against Worcestershire at Ilford. After one more Second XI game, Seymour enjoyed the longest run in the Essex first team of his career, lasting almost until the end of the season; the highlight was the career-best 157 he made against Glamorgan at Cardiff in late July.
