Matt Swift

Matt has developed an impressive reputation for his performances as a wicketkeeper and hard-hitting batsman.

His consistent displays for Shrewsbury – he has captained the London Road club when regular skipper and county team mate Will Parton has been unavailable – was rewarded with a first call up to the Shropshire side during the 2019 season.

Matt made his Championship debut against champions Berkshire at Shifnal.

Batting at eight, he was closing in on a century on his second appearance, against Cheshire at Nantwich, but was eventually left stranded, unbeaten on 92.
