Middlesex County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Sam Robson has signed a new two-year contract with the Club. The deal means that Robson will be available to play for Middlesex CCC for the 2014 and 2015 English Domestic Cricket seasons.
Robson had an outstanding 2013, gaining his County Cap and scoring 1,180 first-class runs at an average of 47.2. The performances of the opening batsman were recognised by the England selectors who selected him for the England Performance Programme, which leaves for Australia in under two weeks. In five seasons with Middlesex CCC Robson, 24, has scored almost 4,000 first-class runs at an average of just under 40.
Commenting on Robson signing a new contract, Middlesex CCC's Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said: "Sam's cricket has developed considerably in the last three years and he is now one of the leading top order batsmen in LV=CC Division One. This progress and quality has been recognised by England who have selected him to be involved in this winter's Performance Programme. The selection is richly deserved.
"Sam is a top bloke with a fantastic attitude. The way he plays and approaches his cricket is first-class. Sam is the sort of cricketer Middlesex wants playing for them and hopefully he will play a leading role in the Club achieving its goal of challenging for and winning trophies. He has undoubtedly benefitted from working with Mark Ramprakash and Mark O'Neill, Middlesex's current and former batting coaches and he has the potential to play international cricket. His progress is something Middlesex are extremely proud of, and his selection this winter highlights the Club's ability to produce international and potential international cricketers."
