Jones swaps Pears for Bears

Richard Jones has joined Warwickshire on loan from neighbours Worcestershire for the remainder of the 2013 season.

A tall fast bowler, Jones boasts 133 first-class wickets at 31 but has only made one LV= County Championship appearance this summer.

His availability will boost a Warwickshire bowling unit depleted by injuries and international call-ups.

Bears director of cricket Dougie Brown said: “Richard is a very exciting fast bowler and will join the bowling ranks at a key time of the season, as we look to push forward in the LV= County Championship.

“With Chris Woakes and Boyd Rankin currently away on international duty, Richard will provide invaluable support and we look forward to welcoming him to Edgbaston.”
