Miles to leave GCCC at the end of the season
12 September 2018
Gloucestershire Cricket today announced that Craig Miles will be leaving the Club at the end of the season to join Warwickshire.
Now 24, Miles came through the Gloucestershire Academy and made his First Class debut as a 16-year-old in 2011 against Northants at the Brightside Ground, Bristol.
He joined the staff full time in 2013 and, over the following six seasons, has taken nearly 300 wickets across all formats; hitting the 50 Championship wicket marker for the first time in 2015 and taking a career best 6-63 in the match at Northampton. His form over the 2015 season also saw him voted as the Club's Young Player of the Year.
Miles bettered that tally the following summer with 52 wickets whilst also enjoying his best year with the bat, completing three of the five half centuries he has made in his career.
The fourth youngest player to represent Gloucestershire in a First Class match, Miles has a winner's medal from the 2015 Royal London One-Day Cup Final at Lord's, and also has his name alongside that of Liam Norwell for his part in the Club's record tenth wicket stand against Worcestershire at Cheltenham in 2014.
Miles said: “Since joining the Academy as a 13-year-old, I have loved my time at Gloucestershire. Winning the Royal London One-Day Cup In 2015 is a highlight of my career here and I will remember that success fondly.
“I would like to thank all the coaching staff for the guidance and assistance throughout my career and I am grateful for the support I have received from Gloucestershire members and fans. Finally, I would also like to thank the team mates that have helped me along the way and I wish the current group of players all the best for the future.”
Everyone at the Club wishes him the best for the future.
