Alex Milton signs for Worcestershire CCC

 Alex Milton (5, 2010-14) admits it is "a dream come true" after signing his first professional contract with Worcestershire CCC. The wicket-keeper-batsman will be on a University Scholarship which the County will help to finance next summer as he completes his studies at Cardiff MCCU. But the 21-year-old will then join up with the staff at New Road full-time for the 2019 campaign. Alex has enjoyed a memorable season with the bat at university, club and second team level with Worcestershire. He scored two hundreds for Cardiff MCCU against Loughborough MCCU and Bradford-Leeds MCCU - two of the stronger university sides - before helping Cardiff to a league and cup double, scoring 1,000 plus runs in the process with five centuries. Milton has also made several important contributions for the County's Seconds including an excellent 91 against a Yorkshire attack which included Ryan Sidebottom, Liam Plunkett, Jack Brooks and Ben Coad at RGS Worcester.

Alex said, "It's been a good season personally. It's just been one of those years where it has gone right, quite a lot of the time whether that has been with uni, Cardiff CC or coming back and playing for Worcestershire 2nd XI. "It feels like everything has been going well and this first professional contract means a lot."
