Brief bio

Twitter - @JamesWeighell
Date of birth - 28th January 1994
Durham First Class Debut - August 2015 vs Middlesex (H)

Injuries hampered James Weighell's progression from academy to First XI but late last summer marked the senior debut of the talented Middlesbrough all-rounder.

Weighell represented club sides in 2012 but his career stalled after a number of injuries and he was released back to home club Stokesley. But after impressing back at his club side, he was brought back to Durham and impressed enough to earn two Championship appearances.

Both came towards the end of last season as he scored 69 runs across both matchesbefore taking his maiden wicket against Hampshire.

Weighell is on a development contract and his progress will be closely monitored by Jon Lewis and his staff.
