Supporting Our Future Champions
We have partnered alongside Warwickshire CCC, giving us the chance to work alongside like-minded people as we look to develop our project within the wider community.
We’ve sponsored 5 of the boys, most of whom have come through the academy, with the hope of supporting them to yet another fantastic season.
Although we’re only just beginning, there’s so much room to develop and we’re looking forward to what lies ahead.
Born in Barbados, Jacob started at Warwickshire aged 12 as part of the club’s relationship with Rugby School. A promising batsman and spinner, he was recently named as vice-captain for England’s u19 squad at the 2022 world cup; a tournament where they finished runners up.
Still only 18, Jacob has taken to the Second XI Championship, and we hope to see him as part of the first XI in the coming years.
The second Brookes to join the set up at Warwickshire, Ethan is another academy graduate having started with the Bears at U10 level. Operating as an all-rounder, he made his debut alongside brother Henry against Essex back in 2019.
At 20, Ethan has been a regular member of the Second XI and became a part of the First team squad last season.
The third of 4 academy graduates we’ve partnered with, Henry made his first-class debut back in 2017. Still only 22, the right arm fast bowler was included in England’s 24-man squad for the ODI series against Ireland in 2020.
Having known both the Brookes’ boys over the years, we can’t wait to see them both line up together in the First XI.
The final academy graduate, Dan made his first class debut in 2019. He was named in England’s U19’s world cup squad in 2020 and finished the tournament as the side’s leading run scorer. As a left sided batsman, Warwickshire feel he could be one to watch at the top order in the side.
Dom joined Warwickshire from Surrey halfway through the 2017 season and has become a mainstay in the side ever since.
After 2 brilliant season at the top order of the side, he earned a call up to the England test side to face New Zealand in 2019. Shortly after in 2020, he scored his first century for his country in the second match against South Africa.
