Jake Lintott, professional cricketer, has signed with Warwickshire County Cricket Club after success in the men’s Hundred and impressing whilst playing for the Birmingham Bears in the Vitality Blast campaign in 2020.

Jake was educated at Queen’s from 2007-11. He joined Queen’s from Danesfield School, Williton, on a Sports Scholarship. Whilst at Queen’s, he was very involved with many sports teams and became a regular member of both the cricket and hockey 1st XIs.

In 2017, Jake returned to Queen's and was appointed Head of Cricket in 2019. His high quality coaching helped to further the skills and talent of many of our pupils.

A successful club player – captaining Clevedon Cricket Club in the West of England Premier League – Jake is a slow left-arm, unorthodox bowler. He moved up into the professional game with 2nd XI appearances for a number of counties before playing in the T20 competition for Hampshire in 2017 and Gloucestershire the following season.

His career really took off with the Birmingham Bears in last season’s T20 Vitality Blast tournament, and in two matches he was declared the man-of-the-match. The team was pipped for a place in the quarter finals after an agonising defeat by Northants in the last group game.

Jake played for Southern Brave in the 100 Overs Cricket final. His team won the tournament by beating Birmingham Phoenix with Jake claiming the wicket of their captain, the brilliant Moeen Ali.

In 2021, Jake signed a three-year contract with Warwickshire County Cricket Club. He also finished 2021 as a medal winner in the inaugural men's Hundred.

Jake commented on the contract saying: “I am delighted to be joining Warwickshire on a three-year deal – it’s something I have had to work hard to achieve and I hope the students at Queen’s can take a lot from my journey.”

“There have been many obstacles along the way but to finally secure a professional contract at 27 years of age is reward for all the effort and perseverance.”

Announcing the contract, Warwickshire’s Director of Cricket Paul Farbrace said: “Jake made a fantastic impression during our Vitality Blast campaign in 2020 and we’re thrilled to secure his immediate future with the club.”

He added: “Slow left-arm unorthodox bowlers are not easy to discover and Jake provides another dimension to our spin bowling attack.”

The support the Foundation gives to many pupils makes a real difference to their educational journey. Providing financial support and scholarship opportunities is a vital part of their work and helps many pupils reach their full potential at Queen’s.
