With a name like W Rhodes, you can be assured that many Yorkshire cricket supporters will be yearning for you to make the grade. Sadly, Will Rhodes could not quite run to a first name of "Wilfred" and he does not bowl slow left-arm, but he has begun to make a name for himself.
Rhodes, a seam-bowling allrounder, signed junior professional terms at Headingley at the end of 2013. He made a surprise debut in May 2014 against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay at the start of the YB 40 competition, but quickly began to show why Paul Farbrace, then Yorkshire's Second XI coach, described him as "an outstanding all-rounder" and "a very talented cricketer". He also played for England U-19s against Pakistan and made a hundred.
He progressed in 2015. He made his first-class debut in the champion county fixture against the MCC in Abu Dhabi, taking three cheap wickets and scoring 61 from the middle order. He was handed the opener's berth for the start of the Championship season in place of England-bound Adam Lyth. Also a regular in one-day and Twenty20 cricket, he showed promise with bat and ball.
Yorkshire decided, though, that his advancement would be quickened elsewhere and he spent time on loan at Essex, under the tutelage of two fellow Yorkshiremen - Chris Silverwood and Anthony McGrath - in 2016 and then decided, midway through the 2017 season, that his future would be better served elsewhere. On the recommendation of former Yorkshire coach, Jason Gillespie, he signed a two-year deal with Warwickshire ahead of the 2018 season.
