During his time at Morecambe he stood in as sub professional for no fewer than four Lancashire League clubs - Ramsbottom, Accrington, Todmorden and Nelson. His best performance was for Nelson against Todmorden when he took 6-35 and scored an unbeaten 54.


The right handed middle order batsman and off break bowler has scored 2968 runs, including three centuries at 29.7 since making his First-class debut in 2003. He also has 172 wickets at 34.2 with a best of 7-48.
