Will Tavaré Bio

William Andrew Tavaré, commonly known as Will Tavaré, is an English cricketer hailing from Bristol, England. Born into a cricketing family, Will carries the legacy of his uncle Chris Tavaré, a former English cricketer who represented his country in 31 Tests during the 1980s and had illustrious spells with Kent and Somerset, amassing close to 25,000 first-class runs.

Will’s journey in cricket began at a young age, making his debut for Gloucestershire second XI when he was just 16 years old. His immense talent and potential were evident when he marked his County Championship debut with a magnificent century against Hampshire at Bristol in 2014. By achieving this feat, he joined an elite list of Gloucestershire players who have accomplished the same.

Having been born and raised in Bristol, Will attended Bristol Grammar School before progressing to Loughborough University. While at Loughborough, he showcased his cricketing skills by representing the Marylebone Cricket Club University (MCCU) and eventually making his first-class debut in April 2010 against Kent. Although his debut did not go as planned, with a fifth-ball duck and being run out for 11, he proved his potential by scoring 61 runs against Hampshire.

Will continued to shine in second XI cricket, accumulating nearly 1000 runs in 2013, including three centuries. This outstanding performance earned him a one-year contract with Gloucestershire in 2014. It was during this season that he cemented his place in the team, producing further centuries against Essex at Bristol, Derbyshire at Cheltenham, and Kent at Canterbury, finishing the year with over 1000 first-class runs to his name.

Recognizing his immense talent, Gloucestershire extended Will’s contract until the end of 2017. However, his progress was hampered by a knee injury in 2016, which limited his appearances on the field. Nonetheless, he remained a valuable asset to the team when fit.

Through his consistent performances and unwavering dedication to the sport, Will Tavaré has established himself as a formidable cricketer. Known for his stylish batting technique and resilience at the crease, he has impressed both fans and critics alike. Will’s ability to convert his starts into big scores has set him apart, and he continues to be a vital asset to Gloucestershire in domestic cricket.

As a player with immense potential and a proven track record, Will Tavaré has undoubtedly made his mark on the English cricketing scene. With his career still unfolding, it will be fascinating to witness the heights he can reach and the contributions he can make to English cricket in the years to come.
