Date of Event : Mon Sep 18, 2017 10:13PM

FPCC is delighted to announce the recruitment of hard hitting Derbyshire batsman, Tom Wood.


Subject to prompt Visa approval, Tom has committed to the club for the entire season, and will be a valuable addition to the 1st XI top order.


Still only 23, he will fit nicely alongside the young FPCC playing squad.


Tom has previously represented Baden Powell C.C. in 2015-16, and at that time he made two guest appearances for FPCC including 95 off 47 balls, and 34 off 20 balls in his two T20 matches with the club.


Since returning to the UK, Tom averaged over a hundred for Derbyshire's 2nd XI in 2016, with a top score of 200 not out versus Worcestershire, and was named as their player of the season.


This earned Tom his first senior contract for Derbyshire for the 2017 season, where he has been selected in First Class, List A and T20 matches, including tour matches against West Indies and South Africa A.


Tom represents Ticknall C.C. in the Derbyshire County Cricket League, alongside former FPCC player Paul Borrington, and has compiled three centuries in 2017 at this level.


We look forward to welcoming Tom to FPCC this season!
