Exciting fast bowler Will Davis joined the club from Derbyshire CCC. The 22-year-old has also represented England under 19s during a highly promising start to his professional career.
Davis is a seamer who has delivered consistent spells of fast bowling. The seamer has taken 40 first-class wickets in his 13-match career with a best haul of seven for 146 against Glamorgan CCC at Colwyn Bay in 2016.
He initially caught the eye in a tourist game against Australia in 2015, a match where Davis took three for 63, including the key wickets of Michael Clarke, Adam Voges and Peter Nevill.
Davis needed few introductions at the Fischer County Ground given that he knew Tom Taylor, Callum Parkinson and Assistant Coach John Sadler from his time at Derbyshire CCC.
The Staffordshire-born cricketer, who is also handy with the bat, has penned a two-year deal at the Fischer County Ground.
