Alex Davies, a middle-order batsman and wicketkeeper who played club cricket for Darwen, became Lancashire's youngest one-day player when he made his debut in a Clydesdale Bank 40 match against Glamorgan in August 2011, two days before his 17th birthday. He made his Championship debut just over a year later, against Surrey at Old Trafford and was included in England's Under-19 World Cup squad, scoring a half-century against South Africa.
Davies signed his first professional contract ahead of the 2013 season. When Lancashire dropped Gareth Cross from the Championship side, he played the last three matches, at 19. Davies' career stalled briefly when Lancashire signed Jos Buttler, England's one-day wicketkeeper, for the start of the 2014 season with the expressed intention of developing his wicketkeeping skills. But by mid-season Buttler had graduated to Test level, with Davies' return even involving the opportunity to open the innings in the Championship.
