ROBBIE WHITE EXTENDS CONTRACT WITH MIDDLESEX
Middlesex Cricket is today delighted to announce that top-order wicket-keeper batsman Robbie White has signed a contract extension with the club, which will see him remain at Lord’s until at least the end of the 2022 season.
White, 24, has been involved with Middlesex since the age of ten, and having progressed through the club’s Youth and Academy system he made his Second Eleven Championship debut aged just seventeen against Sussex in May 2013. He made his First Eleven debut for Middlesex against Durham MCCU in April 2018 – the first of twenty-four First Eleven appearances he has now made to date.
In Middlesex’s recent Bob Willis Trophy clash in Canterbury, White batted across three rain affected days to hit his highest First-Class score for the club, 99, against Kent.
On White signing his contract extension with Middlesex, the club’s Head Coach, Stuart Law, commented:
“Robbie has earned his contract extension through his performances since being added to the starting line-up this season. He also provides great back up to John Simpson in the keeping department. It’s great to have him with us for the coming seasons.
“His work ethic and positivity around the group is infectious and he is a highly regarded member of our squad.
“A product of our Academy which means we hang on to another home-grown product that has come through the Middlesex system.”
Robbie White himself added:
“I am delighted to have extended my contract with Middlesex - a club I have been with since I was ten years old and love playing for.
“I look forward to helping the team push for more success in the coming years”.
