The promising all-rounder is one of a number of members of the Home family to play for Shropshire, following grandfather Jim, dad Ed and uncle Guy, a former county captain, and, most recently, younger brother Jack. Charlie’s sister Milly has represented the Shropshire women’s team.
Charlie was appointed Shropshire captain before the start of the 2023 season.
A former Wrekin College student, Shrewsbury-born Charlie was a member of Northamptonshire’s Academy and played second team cricket for the county.
He returned to Shifnal to play his club cricket ahead of the 2023 season after helping Wolverhampton gain promotion to the Birmingham League’s top division.
A right-arm off spinner and top order batter, Charlie, aged just 18 at the time, secured a place in the Shropshire record books in the 2017 season with a new county one-day best bowling return of 7-52 against Wales at Oswestry.
The previous Shropshire record was Dan Bowen’s haul of 6-25 against Staffordshire in 2010.
Charlie, who made his Championship debut against Devon at Shrewsbury in 2015 and his one-day debut against Staffordshire at the same ground in 2017, spent the 2017 winter playing in Western Australia for Hay Park CC.
