Biography

Aaron is a young fast bowler at the Essex Eagles, with a skiddy action and the ability to move the ball at speed. With County Championship, Bob Willis Trophy, and T20 Blast victories already under his belt, Aaron has a bright future ahead.

Aaron has been at Essex County Cricket Club since the age of 9, and is a product of Essex cricket academy. At just 15, he had the odd distinction of being a substitute fielder for England during a 2013 Ashes warm-up against Essex, a responsibility perhaps unique for somebody of such a tender age.

Aaron was somewhat of an unknown until he made his first class debut for Essex against Sri Lanka. Having opened the bowling, and taking a wicket in each of his first two overs, Aaron went on to take 4 for 62 picking apart Sri Lanka’s top order.

In 2019 Aaron made his List A and T20 debuts for Essex, impressing on both occasions. Aaron went on to play a key role in Essex’s 2019 County Championship victory, taking 17 wickets at an average of under 24, also playing in the T20 Finals Day win over Worcestershire. This earned Aaron a new contract until the end of 2021, keeping him at his childhood club for the near future.

The summer of 2020 saw more success for Aaron, taking 11 wickets in the Bob Willis Trophy, including a career best 4-21 and two wickets in the final victory. He now has 49 first-class wickets, and 13 white-ball wickets for Essex, with plenty more to come.

Quotes

“The EXO1 top makes me feel powerful when playing and training, and gives me confidence to bowl fast every time.”

“My posture while bowling and throwing is something I definitely needed to work on. My Exosuit top has helped massively, and my posture has felt so much better since I started wearing it. I’m really excited to keep wearing my Exosuit top this season.”
