Leicestershire CCC all-rounder Tom Wells is the latest player to sign a deal at Grace Road.
Wells is the seventh player to sign a contract in the last few days as he has committed his future to the Club alongside Matthew Boyce, Michael Thornely, Rob Taylor, James Sykes, Angus Robson and Ollie Freckingham.
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.
The youngster graduated through the Club’s Academy alongside Shiv Thakor and has caught the eye in the Second XI this season. This will be his first professional deal at Leicestershire CCC.
Wells was in the Loughborough Town side that competed in the County Cup final on Sunday and is currently playing in the Second XI final against Kent at Grace Road, where he made 49 not out yesterday.
Leicestershire Chief Executive Mike Siddall said: “Tom has made a real impact this season in 2nd XI cricket. He deserves a chance to prove he can step up a level to the first team squad.”
