Old Boy Ben Aitchison recognised by Wisden
Old Crosbeian Ben Aitchison has been named in Wisden’s list of the best young County Championship players.
After making his first-class debut last year, Ben finished this season as Derbyshire’s leading wicket-taker in the County Championship, with figures of 34 wickets at 23.29. This included a career-best score of 6-28 versus Durham in May.
Wisden, the so-called ‘Bible of Cricket’, has created an XI of youngsters – all of whom were under the age of 24 when the season began on April 8, 2021 – who thrived in the red-ball arena this season.
Ben, who left Merchant Taylors’ in 2017, was named on this year’s list alongside England internationals Dom Bess, Ollie Pope, Dan Lawrence and James Bracey.
Well done Ben, we are all very proud of your achievements to date and we are excited for the bright future that lies ahead of you.
