Fresh from a strong showing for England in the Under 19s World Cup in New Zealand, Liam is looking to challenge hard for a place in Bears' top order in all formats this year.
Liam is highly-rated at Edgbaston and beyond. A regular member of the national Under 19s set-up (he scored a World Cup century against Canada in January) he was given his first championship outings by Warwickshire at the end of last season. That's quite a compliment for an 18-year-old - to be handed the responsibility of opening the batting in four-day cricket.
Liam is also very much a force in white-ball cricket as a forceful batsman who can also contribute some tidy off-spin. The year 2018 could be a big year for the Staffordshire-born player.
