Tom Wells is a highly promising all-rounder who came through Leicestershire’s Academy. He has signed a new deal at the Club to keep him at Grace Road until at least the end of the 2014 season.
Wells is a multi-talented cricketer given he is a hard-hitting batsman and right arm seamer. His father John played and coached at Leicester Tigers and England, so he has a very sporting background.
The youngster graduated through the Club’s Academy alongside Shiv Thakor and caught the eye in the second team in both 2012 and 2013.
Wells produced superb innings for the Seconds in 2012 during games against Worcestershire (Trophy) and MCC Universities (Championship) and also chipped in with the ball. He was selected for the Championship Final against Kent.
The all-rounder then continued his development in 2013 by scoring Second team hundreds at Durham in the Championship and against Lancashire and Worcestershire in the Trophy.
Wells was rewarded by being picked in all three First XI tournaments and he made a big impression. Wells scored 88 runs off just 43 balls in three YB40 innings - and he wasn't dismissed during that time. The all-rounder then made a fantastic 82 against Hampshire in the LV=CC on the final day of the season.
