Charlie Home

The promising all-rounder is the latest member of the Home family to play for Shropshire, following grandfather Jim, dad Ed and uncle Guy, a former county captain. Charlie’s sister Milly has represented the Shropshire women’s team.

A former Wrekin College student, Shrewsbury-born Charlie was a member of Northamptonshire’s Academy and played second team cricket for the county.

He currently plays his club cricket for Wolverhampton after previously serving Shifnal.

A right-arm off spinner and top order batter, Charlie, aged just 18 at the time, secured a place in the Shropshire record books in the 2017 season with a new county one-day best bowling return of 7-52 against Wales at Oswestry.

The previous Shropshire record was Dan Bowen’s haul of 6-25 against Staffordshire in 2010.

Charlie, who made his Championship debut against Devon at Shrewsbury in 2015 and his one-day debut against Staffordshire at the same ground in 2017, spent the 2017 winter playing in Western Australia for Hay Park CC.

He returned to the Shropshire side at the start of the 2019 season in the opening Twenty20 matches of the campaign against Berkshire at Whitchurch.
