Learning all the time

A qualified PE teacher, 24-year-old Alex put the classroom career on hold after being awarded a professional contract by the Bears.

Another recruit from Staffordshire, he is a capable batsman who bowls off-spin – an excellent all-round combination for a skipper to have at his disposal.

“Alex is a very impressive young man who works tirelessly across all areas of his game. He has an important role to play across all formats moving forward.”

When given his championship debut in 2018, in at the deep end against Yorkshire at Headingley, Alex showed that he is unfazed by the big occasion. He also proved in last year’s white-ball comps that he has the skills and strength of mind to bowl spin effectively when batsmen are coming hard at you.

With first-class cricket under his belt also from Cardiff MCCU, and having also played for the Unicorns and Leek CC, Alex has had a broad cricketing education.

Now he’s mustard-keen to just keep on learning – and keep that teaching career on hold.
