Right-hand batsman; Right-arm bowler; Wicketkeeper
Very loyal and reliable, Oli has been a regular in all the junior squads from U9s through to U19s, featuring in two County Cup wins. He helped the U11s win the Terry Moore Trophy in 2014 and was wicketkeeper as the U15s carried off the Andy Seeley Trophy in 2018. Initially seen as a middle-order batsmen and occasional bowler, Olly has developed as a wicketkeeper over the past 4 seasons and he kept regularly in the Cs, and sometimes the Bs, in 2019 where the improvement in his keeping coupled with some valuable contributions with the bat, that included his maiden 50, led to him being voted Most Improved Player. Oli also does his bit off the pitch and, having assisted with junior coaching, he has registered for the ECB Level Foundation Coaching Course in Spring 2021.
