Northamptonshire Player Number: 444
There is photographic evidence in the archives of Graeme looking almost impossibly young as the ‘junior’ member of Northamptonshire’s Academy in 2001, aged just 14. The left-arm spinner from Stowe School made the step-up to first-class cricket with the County five years later but then switched his allegiance to Nottinghamshire in 2010. However, the lure of Wantage Road proved too strong; he returned on loan in 2013 and subsequently re-signed. Graeme enjoyed a terrific season in 2016, culminating in the accolade of national player of the year in the One-Day Cup (after taking 18 wickets with an economy rate of 4.77) and selection for the ‘North v South’ series in the UAE – with a T20 hat-trick and a ‘six-for’ in the Championship win over Glamorgan for good measure.
