They make ’em tough in Halifax
6ft 7in seamer Olly joined Warwickshire from Yorkshire in 2013 and soon showed he is made of stern stuff by batting 78 minutes with a broken arm to save a game against Somerset at Taunton.
Almost a decade down the line, he is established as one of the leaders of the pace attack and as ‘Bear’ as can be. There is no-one more popular among players, fans or staff.
“He’s a very proud adopted Bear and I’m sure that many of our Members and supporters will be delighted that Olly will remain at Edgbaston until at least the end of the 2021 season.”
