NR Barton are proud to announce their partnership with Lancashire cricketer Josh Bohannon.

The Lancashire batsman was top scorer in Division One of the Championship last season, amassing 853 runs at an average of 53.31.

That earned him a call-up for the Lions tour Down Under, where he struck a half-century against an Australia A attack that included England’s Ashes nemesis Scott Boland.

Speaking about the partnership, Neil Whittingham said:  “We’re delighted to have partnered with Josh as a very talented and promising young cricketer. We are optimistic for Josh’s future and hope that our support will help him with his development.”

Josh himself added: “It is great to be working with NR Barton and I am proud to have the firm’s name on my bat.”

Speaking about his hopes of a call for the full test team, Josh added: “If I keep racking them up, then the chance should hopefully come my way. I can only try my best and keep knocking on that door.”
