Great player, great ambassador
Chris Woakes has come a long way since coming through the ranks at Aston Manor and Walmley.
Woakesy is now widely rated as one of the best all-rounders in the game. He is a World Cup winner and at the heart of England’s planning in all formats.
After making his Bears championship debut in 2007, the following year he topped our bowling averages with 45 wickets at 20.48 – and has never looked back.
“I’ve been at Warwickshire since the age of ten and it’s where I’ll always want to be.”
