Buckinghamshire's Rising Stars

Buckinghamshire's Rising Stars

Buckinghamshire have a trio of stars coming through their ranks currently. Stephen Croft burst onto the senior Bucks scene in the summer of 2018, taking 8/33 on his senior championship debut against Hertfordshire. Having just turned 21 at the time, the leg spinner has gone on to play multiple times for the NCCA side, as well as making a mark with Somerset 2ndX1.


Alongside Croft in the spin bowling ranks, is Conner Haddow. The 20-year-old slow left armer made his senior Bucks debut in 2019. He starred in the championship game against Norfolk that season, achieving 9 wickets in the match, when he backed up 4/78 in the first innings with 5/55 in the second. Haddow played for Northants 2ndX1 during that summer, and will be looking to further impress the county side going forwards.


Finally, Alex (AJ) Woodland is not only a regular for the NCCA senior side, but has played 3 First Class games for Cardiff MCCU. The all rounder is a regular contributor with bat and ball, and has also been picked in the Gloucestershire 2ndX1 side. The left handed batsmen scored 89, 87 and 69no during the summer of 2019 for Buckinghamshire along with taking some important wickets with his medium paced seamers. More members of the NCCA pathway who are worth taking note of.
