One of the youngest ever Bears captains, Will has risen to every element of the challenge of leadership. In 2021, he led the side to a sensational double – the County Championship and Bob Willis Trophy – and his influence resonates massively on and off the field.
Having switched from Yorkshire in search of greater first-team opportunities, he slotted brilliantly into the Bears team in his first season in 2018, forming a rock-solid opening alliance with Dom Sibley. Able to score quickly, Will is a versatile batsman who also contributes valuably with accurate medium-pace bowling.
“It’s an exciting time for everyone at this club and we have a great opportunity to grow together and develop a brand of cricket that entertains and brings more of the success that our Members and supporters have experienced in the last 10 years.”
