Ben Roberts

A towering right-arm opening bowler, Ben played Minor Counties cricket for Wales before signing for Shropshire.

He made his first appearance for the county against the RAF at Bridgnorth before his T20 debut against Herefordshire at Wrekin College a few days later in May 2019.

He went on to play for Shropshire in all three formats, with his best bowling figures 4-35 in the first innings of the Championship match against Wiltshire at Marlborough.

Ben enjoyed a successful 2019/2020 winter in Australia playing club cricket in Victoria.

He was unfortunate to suffer an injury early in the 2021 season, but he returned to the Shropshire side at the start of the 2022 campaign and played in all of the county’s T20 group matches.

Ben joined Bridgnorth from Oswestry ahead of the start of the 2002 season.
