Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that young all-rounder, Luke Hollman, has signed a two-year contract with the club.
The 19-year-old, Islington born, leg-spinning all-rounder is a product of the Middlesex Academy and has represented Middlesex through the County Age Group set-up since the age of nine.
Hollman made his Second Eleven debut back in the summer of 2017 and has since made over 25 appearances for the club’s Second Eleven in all three formats of the game. He also has fifteen Under 19 International caps to his name for England, having played for his country in all three international formats, including the Under 19 World Cup and four Under 19 Test appearances.
Speaking of signing his first professional contract, Hollman commented:
“I am massively honoured, overwhelmed, and hugely privileged to have been given the opportunity to sign this contract with Middlesex - my boyhood club and the club that I’ve been a fan of my whole life.
“I am really looking forward to the next two years ahead under Stuart Law and his coaching staff and am hopeful that I can contribute towards some success on the field and help the club realise its ambition of securing a return into Division One of the County Championship.”
Middlesex Cricket’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, added:
“Luke thoroughly deserves his rookie contract. It comes on the back of strong performances for Middlesex’s Youth sides, our Second Eleven and for North Middlesex Cricket Club, who he has helped become a major force in the Middlesex Cricket League.
“His potential as an all-rounder excites everyone at Middlesex and we look forward to him developing into a fine cricketer. Luke’s potential continues to be recognised by the Young Lions, England’s Under 19 team, who he is expected to play for in this winter’s Under 19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa.”
