Nine-year-old Junior Bear James Barwell has been selected by the Bears players as the winning Christmas Card design for 2021.

The Club received a great response to the annual Junior Bears Christmas Card design competition and James’ design was selected as the winner by the Warwickshire players.

James is in Year 4 at The Blue Coat School in Edgbaston. He is a massive cricket fan and hopes to follow in his favourite player Jacob Bethell’s footsteps and become a professional cricketer both bowling and batting.

The winning design is now available from Store ’94, in time for Christmas. As part of the prize, James has won a T20 shirt signed by the current Bears men’s team squad plus a Bears goody bag.

Junior Bears Membership, for under 16s, is available for the 2022 season for only £25 and includes invited to exclusive events throughout the year including the Junior Bears Christmas Party which is taking place on Monday 13 December.
