Joe Weatherley

Batter

Joe Weatherley is a right-hand batter and right-arm spin bowler.

He was born in Winchester, Hampshire and is a product of Hampshire’s hugely successful youth system

The top-order batter has represented Hampshire from a young age, coming through ranks as part of the Club’s age-group, Academy sides.

Weatherley made the step-up to Hampshire’s Second XI in 2015, enjoying an impressive campaign with three centuries and three fifties with the bat as well as career-best figures of 6-46 with the ball.

First XI debuts in all formats arrived in 2016 as Weatherley made nine appearances for Hampshire's senior squad across all formats that summer: two first-class games, two List-A matches and five T20s.

Weatherley sealed a loan move to Division Two side Kent for the 2017 season to allow him time in the middle to continue his development, although he returned for the final three County Championship fixtures to helping Hampshire retain their Division One status.

The 22-year-old impressed in a regular spot at the top of the order during the 2018 season, contributing 772 runs across all formats including his first centuries for the Club in both the County Championship and 50-over competitions - the latter of which was a competition in which he especially thrived to helo the Club secure it’s first limited-overs silverware in six years. 

Having made a positive start as an opener again in 2019, including 341 runs in nine Championship innings, Weatherley suffered a fractured ankle which ended his season in July.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a truncated 2020 domestic season, Joe bounced back from injury in excellent style, totalling 263 runs at an average of 43.83 in the inaugural Bob Willis Trophy and also contributing 185 runs at an average of more than 2020 in a shortened Vitality Blast campaign.

A full campaign with Hampshire in 2021 saw Weatherley vastly improve in white ball cricket, winning the club's white ball batsman of the year award. A breath taking 71 vs Somerset at finals day was his top score in the competition, this included hitting De Lange for multiple 6's from almost 90mph deliveries. 

Although not as successful in red ball cricket in 2021, Weatherley was still ever present at the top of the order, forming a partnership with Ian Holland and only missed one championship match during the season. The Winchester born man was electric in the slip cordon, backing up the bowlers in the field.
