Warwickshire County Cricket Club have signed left-arm spin bowler Karl Carver for the Royal London Cup campaign on a three-week contract for the tournament.

Carver (25) is currently with minor National Counties side Northumberland having experienced all forms of cricket with Yorkshire.

Born in Northallerton and educated at Thirsk School, Carver joined his home county at under-14s level and after receiving an international call-up for England U19s against South Africa, he was named as the Brian Johnston Memorial Trust Scholar of the Year in September 2014 following his promising displays for his country.

Carver – who won Championship-winning medals in Yorkshire’s triumphs of 2014 and ’15 – made his full debut for the White Rose at Edgbaston in 2014, taking the wickets of Keith Barker, Jeetan Patel and Boyd Rankin. He would go on to make his List A debut and T20 a year later.

Captained by Will Rhodes at club and international level, Carver has played a total of eight first-class, 15 List A and ten T20 matches.

“We’re delighted to welcome Karl to Warwickshire,” said Paul Farbrace.

“Karl is well known to our coaching and playing staff and will bring experience to our group for the Royal London Cup.

“Karl has tasted success at Yorkshire, and he is determined to make an impact with the Bears.”
