Clark turns pro at Lancashire

CLEATOR cricketer Jordan Clark is bowled over after winning a professional contract with Lancashire CC.

SIGNED PRO: Jordan Clark batting for Lancashire Lightning against Worcestershire Royals

The 20-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the current County Championship winners and is delighted to have realised his dream to become a pro.

Jordan, who learned his trade at Cleator CC, along with brothers Graham and Darren, and father Ian, featured heavily in Lancashire’s Twenty20 group games this season. He played nine times scoring 127 runs at an average of 21.16 and taking four catches. He also featured in the latter stages of the CB40 competition as he began to make his mark.

He also had a very successful season with Lancashire Seconds, scoring 876 runs at an average of 43.09 including three centuries and five half centuries.

After impressing from an early age at Cleator, Jordan earned himself a cricket scholarship at Sedbergh School.

And he has now become the second player out of a very talented Cumbria schools side that played together for five years, to sign professional terms, the other being the newly capped England player Ben Stokes.

Jordan has also represented his country at under-15 level and hopes now to push on for a regular place with Lancashire’s first XI.
