James Fuller signs for Middlesex CCC

Middlesex County Cricket Club are today delighted to announce the signing of James Fuller, who has signed a three year deal with the club.

Fuller who has played for the last five seasons for Gloucestershire County Cricket Club is England qualified and made 35 first-class appearances for them, taking 89 wickets at an average of 35, with a best return of 6 for 47. Fuller also excelled in white ball cricket; playing a key role in Gloucestershire’s successful Royal London One Day Cup campaign this year, including taking two wickets in the final at Lord’s. Fuller’s efforts in the shorter formats for Gloucestershire have yielded him 58 List-A wickets at 25 and 35 Twenty20 wickets at 24.

Speaking of the club’s new signing, Angus Fraser, Middlesex’s Managing Director of Cricket, commented.....

“Middlesex CCC have been looking to sign a fast bowler with white ball pedigree and in James I believe we have found a bowler that will add extra bite and quality to this area of our cricket. I have watched James bowl on numerous occasions and have been impressed with what I have seen. He is a fine athlete with a strong, easy action that allows him to bowl with good pace. He can also give the ball a good whack when batting. James is extremely ambitious and is the sort of character that fits what Middlesex CCC are looking for.”

“James highlighted the impact he can have on a game during this seasons Royal London One-Day Cup Final at Lord's. His pace and skill really unsettled Surrey's top order and it played a major role in Gloucestershire successfully defending a modest total. James will also add a slightly different dimension to our County Championship resources too. I am confident that his game will develop further under the guidance of Middlesex's coaching staff and he will enjoy playing for the club.”

On signing for Middlesex, James Fuller commented.....

“I’m really looking forward to playing here at Lord’s with Middlesex. Having won the final here recently with Gloucestershire I’ve got great memories of the place already and as the Home of Cricket I can’t think of anywhere better to be playing my cricket.”

“I’m looking forward to showing Middlesex supporters what I can bring with the white ball. I’ve worked really hard on my skills back at Gloucestershire with John Bracewell, Ian Harvey and Richard Dawson and have had plenty of success in the shorter formats, so I’m looking to build on that. I’m also looking forward to contributing with the red ball too and hope to get plenty of opportunities to show what I can do in the Championship.”
