You should check him out on Play cricket with regards his bowling as he's very effective and yet he's only about 15 or 16. He's accurate and it's a case of - you miss - I hit. So be very wary - he deserves some respect - play straight and watch for his variations. On the Benfleet pitch next to the woods - furthest from their pavilion - in the game where I faced him and bowled against him in late August, the wicket offered little in the way of spin, so he didn't get much turn off the wicket. From what I could see he bowls right arm finger-spin and a variation which looked like a leg-break, neither of which turned.
In our game, the more aggressive batsmen fell foul to him - simply not showing any respect for him from what I could see. Our better batsman dealt with him fine, but was watchful by the looks of the scorecard below...
My suggested plan for Joe Owen if you're a Wrist-Spinner
As a batsman - he was okay, as you can see from my pitch diagram and based on other people's observations he either favoured or only has pull-shot that he's happy to play. The obvious conclusion looking at this and from the results of bowling at him is not to bowl legside. We were playing with 9 blokes, so setting a field was a little tricky and many of these runs could be negated by having your better players at fine-leg about 1/2 to 1/3rd of the way in from the boundary as the shots were in the air. Similarly a bloke at square leg, in a more conventional position and another bloke at deep mid-wicket sweeping. In theory, then cutting off his runs and dependent on the need to make runs he's going to be forced to play through the off-side which he did on a few occasions playing straight drives bringing the potential to find the edge of the bat.
I found on that wicket the ball didn't turn much at all and didn't see anyone else turn it in any significant way. Although, as I said in the account of the match here I wasn't getting any real spin on the ball, so on a better day it might turn? If it is turning and you're able to bowl a reasonable line and keep the ball off of anywhere leg-side, you're going to cause him problems, especially if you've got either a top-spinner, wrong-un or a ball that goes on. With the ball not turning, he struggled to get the ball through the covers (B) with the fielder intercepting the ball the majority of the time, again this will need to be one of your players that's willing to put their body on the line and dive around a little.
