Welch signs with Running Foxes

Leicestershire County Cricket Club are delighted to announce the signing of Nick Welch in a deal that will keep him at Leicestershire until at least the end of the 2022 season.

The 22-year old is no stranger to Leicestershire CCC as he donned the Leicestershire Fox numerous times last season for the Second XI, as well as appearing against Leicestershire for Loughborough MCCU.

Welch has plenty of runs to his name not only for Leicestershire but also for Surrey as he appeared for their Second XI in 2019 also.

The right-handed batsman appeared for Surrey Second XI in 2018 where he posted some impressive scores including a high score of 175* as well as a 149. In 2018, he appeared in 28 matches for Surrey Second XI claiming 941 runs at an average of 26.88.

The following year he appeared in 16 matches for Surrey Second XI posting 497 runs, with a high score of 90 and an average of 27.61.

In the same year, 2019, Welch also played for Leicestershire Second XI where he certainly put his name on the map with some incredible performances which saw him post 404 runs in 6 matches, including a high score of 119 and an average of 80.80.

Welch also has some first-class appearances to his name for Loughborough MCCU where he has played 5 innings posting 163 runs in total, a high score of 79 and an average of 32.60.

Welch will be looking to follow in the footsteps of former teammate turned current teammate, Hassan Azad, and impose himself upon this Leicestershire CCC batting line up.
