Warwckshire all-rounder returns to Highfield for second season

WARWICKSHIRE all-rounder Alex Thomson is rejoining his former club Leek for a second summer in the North Staffs and South Cheshire League Premier Division.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time last season at Highfield and I am delighted to have signed for next season," said the 26-year-old.

Thomson left Leek and put on hold a career as a PE teacher to chance his arm in first-class county cricket with Warwicks.

Since then he has made 14 first-class, nine List A and 11 Twenty/20 appearances for the Edgbaston-based county known as the Bears.

Thomson's return to Highfield has seen him team up again with former Warwickshire colleague and now Leek skipper Alex Mellor.

Mellor agreed a two-year contract with Leek after been released by the Bears at the end of the 2019 season and Thomson has penned a second one-year deal.

Thomson played five times for Leek in 2020 and claimed 12 wickets with his off-spin.

His contribution helped Leek gain a fourth-placed finish and hint of a brighter future for the club.

"We've got some impressive talent at the club and I believe we are capable of being title challengers," said Thomson, who is a product of Leek's junior system.

He helped Leek win back-to-back NSSCL Premier Division titles in 2012 and 2013 as a promising young player who progressed into Staffordshire's minor counties side.
