JAMES FULLER LEAVES MIDDLESEX CRICKET
Middlesex Cricket can today confirm that all-rounder James Fuller has turned down the offer of a contract extension and will join Hampshire from the 2019 season.
An elbow injury sustained in 2017 limited the number of appearances Fuller made for the club throughout the three years he spent at Lord’s since joining from Gloucestershire at the start of 2016, and in 46 appearances across all formats for Middlesex he scored 714 runs and took 75 wickets.
Everyone at Middlesex Cricket wishes James every success for the future.
On leaving Middlesex, Fuller commented:
“I want to thank Middlesex Cricket for the opportunity to play at the Home of Cricket.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think growing up in New Zealand I would call Lord’s my home ground. I have so many fond memories of my last three years here at Lord’s - none more so then when the side won the County Championship in 2016.
I came to Middlesex to get better as a player and to challenge myself and I would like to thank all the coaches for their efforts and insights to make that happen.
I would also like to thank Angus Fraser for his unwavering support during 2017 when I was side-lined with an elbow injury. With that I would also like to thank the medical support team, Pete Waxman and Dave Bartlett for their efforts to get me back playing cricket.
I would also like to thank all the back-room staff who have become great friends and have added to what is already a great club.
I have thoroughly enjoyed contributing to the second half of the season this year and I will deeply miss all the guys in the dressing room. It is a great team filled with great blokes, who I wish all the very best for the future.”
