Ian signed for Gloucestershire in December 2010, following three years with the MCC Young Cricketers programme at Lord’s.

Born in Bootle, he previously played Second XI cricket for Lancashire CCC – the club his father - also called Ian - played 47 First Class matches for in the 1980s.

An aggressive top order batsman, Ian has scored nearly 2000 First Class runs and been a regular for Gloucestershire in the shorter forms of the game.

In 2015 he enjoyed his best ever T20 season with 392 runs at an average of 39.2. He also stood-in as captain in the T20 prior to Michael Klinger’s return and also led the side in the first four-day match v Leicestershire after Geraint Jones’ resignation.

But his season was ended prematurely after he broke breaking his wrist in the nets prior to day two of that game.

In 2016, Ian was the third highest run scorer in the NatWest T20 Blast competition, with only Gloucestershire's Michael Klinger and Glamorgan's Colin Ingram scoring more.
