Xavie Clarke

Xavie followed in the footsteps of his brothers Robbie and Joe, the Nottinghamshire and England Lions batter, when he was selected to play for Shropshire during the 2019 season.

A right-hand top order batter, he was given permission by Worcestershire’s Academy to make his Championship debut in a five-wicket victory over Cornwall at Bridgnorth.

He followed it up by scoring half centuries in both innings against Cheshire at Nantwich to further underline his potential.

Xavie, who has previously played his club cricket for Shropshire sides Oswestry and Shifnal, signed for South Wales Premier Cricket League club Ammanford at the start of the 2022 season.

He impressed for Cardiff MCCU in the early weeks of the 2022 season as he scored half centuries against both Northamptonshire and Glamorgan.
