Warwickshire signed Alex Mellor, a wicketkeeper-batsman, on a one-year contract at the end of the 2015 season after promising form in the Second XI. He came to prominence by becoming only the seventh Staffordshire cricketer to score a double hundred in the Minor Counties Championship, with 208 not out against Suffolk in 2015 - and also set the county's record for dismissals in the same match by taking 11 catches. He spent time on loan at Derbyshire in 2016 and made his Championship debut against Leicestershire.
