TOBY ROLAND-JONES COMMITS LONG-TERM FUTURE TO MIDDLESEX

TOBY ROLAND-JONES COMMITS FUTURE TO MIDDLESEX CRICKET

Middlesex Cricket can today announce that Toby Roland-Jones has signed a long-term extension to his contract with the club.

The right arm seamers’ new deal sees him committing the next three years of his playing future to Middlesex, with an agreement which will see him remain at Lord’s until at least the end of the 2022 season.

Roland-Jones, 31, has clocked up 218 appearances for the club in all forms of the game since making his Middlesex debut back in 2010. The bowling all-rounder has hit almost 3,500 runs for the club in all forms, taken over 520 wickets, and looks back to his best after a frustrating couple of injury plagued years.

Roland-Jones earned himself call-ups to both the England Test and ODI squads in 2017 before a back injury cruelly led to his withdrawal from the England set-up, having more than proved his credentials on the international stage, picking up 17 wickets in just four Tests.

On signing his new long-term contract with the club, Roland-Jones commented:

“I’m thrilled to have agreed a new deal with Middlesex and am really excited about what the future holds for the club.

“Middlesex has been my life for the past decade, and now, more than ever, there’s a great atmosphere and a real hunger in the dressing room to achieve success.

“My thanks go to Angus for his support over the years and to the club for this new contract.

“I’m really looking forward to the next three years with Stuart Law at the helm and to playing under the new skipper.”

Stuart Law, Middlesex’s Head Coach commented:

“Toby is a vital part of our squad both on and off the field.

“Playing in all formats for us last year he showed his class with bat and ball at various times and it is a great plus for us that he has extended his contract.

“His leadership will be essential to bring the younger members of our squad up to the standards required for success at this level.”
