forms of the game and is playing some of the best cricket of his career.

for the club off the field, including coaching our young cricketers, acting as
our PCA representative and supporting our media and community teams.
“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

2013 and we’ve had a good amount of success on the field as well,” said
“The team has seen a bit of change in the last couple of years
and we’ve seen more young players come through our pathway who are making their
way in the game. As one of the more experienced players, I see it being part of
my role to offer advice and support to help these guys develop.
“We’ve got very exciting times ahead and I’m thrilled that I can
be part of this as a Bear.”
