Middlesex County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Steven Finn has signed a new three year contract with the club. The new deal, which shadows Finn’s England and Wales Cricket Board central contract, means the fast bowler will be available to play for Middlesex until at least the end of the 2017 English Domestic Cricket Season.
Finn, 25, made his first-class debut for Middlesex in 2005 at the age of 16 and by the summer of 2009 he was leading the county attack. These performances were immediately recognised by England and that winter he was called up as a replacement on the tour of Bangladesh. It was here where he made his Test debut.
In total Finn has so far played 80 games of cricket for England and taken 174 wickets. During England’s ill-fated Ashes tour of 2013/14 he returned home early to sort out technical issues in his game. Under the guidance of Richard Johnson, Middlesex’s Assistant/Bowling Coach, Finn made a successful return to first-class cricket, where he has so far taken 44 LV=CC wickets this season.
Commenting on Finn signing his new contract Middlesex’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said: “This news, and the fact Steven has been selected in England’s squad for the fourth Test against India at Old Trafford, is great for the club. Middlesex are extremely proud to have developed Steven and to have helped him achieve what he has, so far in the game.
“Middlesex is his club, he offers us a great deal both on and off the field, and we are chuffed that he wants to spend at least the next period of his career with us. He is a fine bowler and a cracking young man. We love having him around and are fortunate to have him at the club.”
Commenting on signing his new contract, Steven Finn said: “I am delighted to have signed three more years at the club I have spent my whole career with as a professional cricketer. I look forward to continuing to build on the club's status as a strong division one side and hopefully helping to bring success to the county over years to come. Needless to say I am hugely indebted to the club and the coaching structure, particularly Richard Johnson, in helping me develop in recent times. I couldn't think of anywhere else I would want to play my cricket.”
