Born 8 November 1998 Sunderland, Co.Durham.

Nottinghamshire First-Class debut v Somerset (Taunton) 2019.

This has been a breakthrough year for the young Nottinghamshire all-rounder, as he made his first strides into the county’s first team ranks.

Born in the north-east but very much a homegrown talent, Liam has worked his way through the age groups whilst also learning his craft at Farnsfield CC.

The former England Under-19 international impressed on the pre-season of tour of South Africa in March 2019 and was given his debut for the Specsavers County Championship match at Taunton that July.

In the cruellest twist of fate imaginable, he spent one hour on the field before being taken ill with tonsillitis and rushed off to hospital.

Returning later in the match, he made an unfortunate duck in his first innings before the left-arm spinner turned his luck around with a stunning five-wicket haul.

Wickets continued to come easily and he also had the satisfaction of a maiden unbeaten fifty against Yorkshire at Scarborough, which helped him secure his first professional full-time contract.
