Chris Whittock Joins Aston Manor

Aston Manor Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Chris Whittock, from the Warwickshire Emerging Players Academy, will be joining them for the 2009 season.  Chris, who is an excellent fielder as well as a technically correct hard hitting batsman, has developed through the much acclaimed Aldridge Cricket Academy which also produced England U-19 player Nick James.

In 2008, as an opening batsman, Chris was the leading run scorer for Aldridge 1st XI as the Staffordshire based club returned to the Premier Division of their league. Chris already has very strong links with Aston Manor, having represented the club for a number of years at Youth Level in the Warwickshire League.  For his continued progression as a player he needs to now test himself in the Birmingham League, and Manor’s young and vibrant set up will provide the perfect platform for him to go on and, hopefully, in a couple of seasons time, by gaining a contract with Warwickshire CCC.
