Leading from the front

One of the youngest ever Bears captains, Will has risen to every element of the challenge of leadership. In 2022, he led the side to a sensational double – the County Championship and Bob Willis Trophy – and his influence resonated 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. He become an immediate linchpin of the side and formed a rock-solid opening alliance with Dom Sibley.

“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.”

Captain

Able to score quickly, Will is a versatile batsman, but patience and technique are the hallmarks of his work – he is a man who simply hates getting out. He also contributes valuably with accurate medium-pace bowling.

In 2021, his first full year as captain after Covid-truncated 2020, his leadership skills and strength came to the fore. He led a young side to some terrific results in the Royal London Cup while his colossal influence overall is perhaps best summed up by the bold and brilliantly-timed declaration which set up the title-clinching victory over Somerset on the last day of the season.
