Ed Barnard, a seam-bowling allrounder, is one of a talented group of players developed through the Worcestershire Academy and promising better times for the club. Initially impressing in the professional game more as a bowler - he graduated to the first team in the summer of 2015 and soon made himself a first-choice selection in white-ball cricket - Barnard had previously won two man-of-the-match awards at England U-19 level for his batting: he made a century in an U-19 Test against South Africa in January 2013 - helping his side to victory despite slumping to 89 for 5 in their first innings - and 93 against the UAE in the U-19 World Cup in February 2014.
He had a solid first full season in 2016, his director of cricket Steve Rhodes arguing that he performed better in first-class cricket than his figures suggested (430 runs at 26.88 batting low in the order, and 31 wickets at 43.58).
A former pupil of Shrewsbury School - he became the eighth pupil from the school to sign for a first-class county in six years when he agreed a summer contract in 2014 - Barnard previously represented Shropshire in Minor Counties cricket and Shrewsbury in the Birmingham League.
With other clubs starting to show interest in him, Barnard signed a new three-year deal with Worcestershire to secure his future at the club until the end of 2018.
