Will steps into the driving seat for 2018

Rawtenstall have signed Will Driver as professional for the 2018 Season.

Rawtenstall Chairman Vinny Hanson said: "Firstly I would like to thank current professional Andrew Payne on behalf of myself and the whole club. Andrew answered our late calls and stepped in to the role of professional in what we knew would be a tough season ahead. He has conducted himself impeccably and has shown he still has the skill to perform and we hope that continues next year as he moves back to the amateur ranks.

"We are delighted to have secured the signing of Will Driver as professional for the 2018 season in such a timely manner. Will is no stranger to local league cricket having started his career with Read in the Ribblesdale League before moving to Lowerhouse. Consistent performances saw Will elevated to the professional ranks with a spell at Accrington and his current club Winton. Will was looking for a fresh challenge to remove himself from his comfort zone and thankfully for us, having shared our cricket plan moving forward, he decided he wanted to be part of that. He will bring his undoubted all-round qualities to the club but he is a very keen coach and we look forward to seeing his work both on and off the field starting at winter nets.

"We would like to thank Gary Hunt from Cric Intro for his assistance with this signing."
