Middlesex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Andrew Balbirnie and Ryan Higgins have signed full-time professional contracts with the club. Balbirnie joins Middlesex having spent the past three years at Cardiff University. During his time at Cardiff he held a summer contract. His ever improving batting is bringing him closer and closer to gaining a position in Ireland's full side.
Higgins joins straight from the Academy and after taking his A Levels. He, too, is a batsman and was England U19's star performer during the recent tri-nation one-day tournament involving Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Commenting on the signings Middlesex CCC's Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said: "We are delighted to offer contracts to two exciting young cricketers. Andrew and Ryan have been in Middlesex's system for quite some time and it is rewarding for everyone at the club to see young talent developed by ourselves coming through. We are confident both are set for successful careers with Middlesex CCC."
