Neil Dexter to leave Middlesex County Cricket Club

Middlesex County Cricket Club can today confirm that Neil Dexter will be leaving the club at the end of the season to join Leicestershire County Cricket Club on a three year deal.

Dexter joined Middlesex from Kent at the end of the 2008 season, making his debut that winter against England in the Stanford Super Series in Antigua. His first full season for Middlesex was in 2009, and he has since gone on to make 237 appearances for the club in all formats, scoring over 7,150 runs and taking 167 wickets for the club.

Dexter leaves Middlesex after seven years at Lord’s, where he captained the club in first-class cricket between 2010 and 2012 and in one-day cricket between 2010 and 2013.

Speaking of Neil Dexter’s departure, Angus Fraser, Middlesex CCC’s Managing Director of Cricket said.....

“I am delighted that Neil has secured a long term contract with a club that will guarantee him regular first eleven cricket.”

“Neil is at an age and stage in his career where he needs to play regular first eleven cricket and have a prominent role in that side. Unfortunately Middlesex County Cricket Club could not guarantee this moving forward, so I fully understand and respect Neil’s decision to look for a fresh challenge elsewhere.”

“Neil has been a much liked and respected member of the Middlesex CCC playing staff since his arrival from Kent in late 2008, and has produced many valuable performances for the club on the field. He also led us to Second Division success in 2011, something he should be extremely proud of.”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working closely with Neil. He is a good man who possesses the characteristics I like to see in a person. He is a good cricketer too. Everybody at Middlesex thanks Neil for his contribution since 2009 and wishes him and his family every success and happiness in the future.”
