Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce today that John Simpson has signed a two-year contract extension with the club, which will see him remain at Lord’s until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Wicket-keeper batsman Simpson, 30, made his debut for Middlesex back in 2009 and across all three formats of the game has played a total of 313 matches for the club - scoring 8,712 runs and taking 593 dismissals behind the stumps.

Simpson’s first-class record of 451 victims has only been surpassed by five other wicket-keepers in the club’s history.

Speaking of Simpson’s new deal, Head Coach Stuart Law said:

“It is great news that we have extended John Simpson’s contract.

“He has been an important member of Middlesex Cricket for the last 10 years, and while 30 years old, has plenty more to give to the county.

“With a fresh approach and new ideas from within the dressing room, I’m sure Simmo is ready to challenge himself further to improve his game and to ensure that Middlesex have not only a great season but build a platform of success for many years to come.

“His experience and talent will be vital to ensuring the teams’ success moving forward.”

On committing his future to Middlesex, Simpson himself said:

“I am very pleased to have extended my contract with Middlesex into what will be my eleventh and twelfth seasons at the club.

“There is a real sense of excitement around the club ahead of the new season and we can’t wait to get going.”
