Ben Sanderson has signed a two year deal with Northamptonshire County Cricket Club and he can’t wait to get started. “I’m really looking foward to this season. I have a different relationship with cricket now and I enjoy it so much more.” Sheffield born and bred, Ben has been serious about his cricket since a young age and was signed to the Yorkshire Academy at the age of 13 where he progressed year by year. His time at Yorkshire culminated in a few first XI games across all formats. In 2012, cricket took a little bit of a back seat as he helped out the family business and played for Shropshire.
“I started coming to Northampton for the odd net session in 2013 and that’s when I started chatting to the coaches here. We kept in touch frequently and I made my first appearances last season. The Aussie tour match had to be a highlight but it was good to spend time with all the lads and the coaches so I feel like i’ve started this new season as one of the boys already!”.
