Consistently the quickest and most threatening bowler in the Everards Premier League for Loughborough Town CC, Ollie Freckingham was given his opportunity at Leicestershire CCC and grabbed it with both hands.
Freckingham was hugely unfortunate with injuries in 2014 but made a big impression during his first full season on the Leicestershire CCC staff.
The paceman played in all but one of the LV=CC fixtures and was the Club’s leading wicket-taker. Freckingham took 35 wickets at an average of 44, including a nine-wicket match at Northamptonshire. He took a career-best 6-125 at Wantage Road and also picked up four-fors against Gloucestershire and Lancashire.
That led to the 26-year-old being awarded with the Frank S Smith for Bowling in the First XI, as well as winning the Livingston Award for being the most improved uncapped player at Grace Road.
Freckingham was part of the Leicestershire age group set-ups and is a sporting all-rounder. He is also an excellent golfer and has played football at a decent local standard.
