CricX can confirm Morwell Cricket Club’s signing of Louis Johnson for the 2023/24 season.

Johnson is a promising left-arm bowling all-rounder from Chorley, Lancashire.

Louis has recently moved clubs and will turn out for Leigh Cricket Club in 2023, playing in Lancashire’s flagship Cricket League, The Liverpool & District Competition ECB Premier League. The extremely talented left armer has represented the Red Rose County throughout age group cricket and in 2022 made his senior 2XI debut for Lancashire.

Formerly of Chorley Cricket Club who play in the Northern Premier League, Louis bowls left-arm medium-fast and uses his main weapon of swinging the ball excessively to take early wickets. Already a capable opening bowler, Johnson will continue to improve regularly as he gets stronger over the course of the season.

Louis also bats left handed, and although capable of occupying the crease he usually slots in down the order. During the last season, he impressed for Club, County and College (Myerscough College) in 2022, until injury put an end to his season half way through.

We wish Louis and everyone at Morwell CC all the best for the upcoming season.
