Ben Lees

A promising wicketkeeper and top order right-handed batsman, Shrewsbury School pupil Ben is a regular member of the Bridgnorth team in the Birmingham League.

His first club was Allscott Heath.

Ben, who trained with Worcestershire’s Academy over the winter of 2019, has been part of the Shropshire Academy set up for some time, opening the batting and keeping wicket.

He made his Shropshire debut at the age of 16 in a T20 victory over Herefordshire at Wrekin College in May 2019.

Ben marked his second competitive first-team appearance for the county by scoring 50 – and putting on 112 for the sixth wicket with captain Graham Wagg – as Shropshire beat Northumberland in the NCCA Trophy at Oswestry in May 2021.
