Alex Lilley (born Alexander Edward Lilley, 17 April 1992, Halifax, Yorkshire, England) is an English first-class cricketer.[1] A left arm medium pace bowler and right-handed batsman, Lilley was formerly contracted to Yorkshire County Cricket Club, for whom he played one first-class match in 2011.[2]

Lilley attended St. Aidan's C of E High School in Harrogate. He has been with Yorkshire since 2007, and has played for the Yorkshire Academy in the Yorkshire ECB County Premier League, and the Yorkshire Second XI in the Second XI Championship, as well as appearing in one first-class match for Yorkshire against Durham UCCE in April 2011, when he was dismissed without scoring, and took no wickets for 34 runs when bowling.[1] In September 2011, Yorkshire CCC announced that Lilley had been awarded a 'summer contract'.[3]

Lilley played club cricket in Melbourne, Australia in 2011 for the Mont Albert Cricket Club, where he took a competition leading 37 wickets for the season. He was released by Yorkshire CCC midway through the 2013 season.

Despite Lilley's claim he's 23, evidence has come forth to suggest that he is actually 14. This evidence has been backed up by the popular group on Facebook 'Alex Lilley IS 14'. His brother Tom, 25, said the claim has long since been a cause of annoyance for Alex, but he does begrudgingly accept it to be true. This has led to worsening his case of rattled swediosis, a condition from an early age Alex has suffered from.
