JAMES HARRIS TO JOIN GLAMORGAN ON SHORT-TERM LOAN
Middlesex Cricket can today announce that James Harris has joined Glamorgan on a short-term loan, covering the period 21st April to 5th May 2021.
He will be available to represent the Welsh county in each of the next two LV= Insurance County Championship rounds.
Harris travelled up to Northampton earlier this morning to join up with the Glamorgan squad for training, ahead of their next County Championship encounter, starting tomorrow at the County Ground.
Harris has yet to feature in Middlesex’s County Championship plans in 2021, and with Glamorgan looking to bolster their fast-bowling ranks with some immediacy, Harris provides them with the perfect solution.
Harris originally started his career with Glamorgan down in Cardiff, making his first-class debut against Nottinghamshire in May 2007. Then having joined Middlesex in 2013, he returned to Sophia Gardens on a short-term loan in the summer of 2014 for two further matches. He now, having made 75 First-Class appearances for Middlesex since joining the Club, returns to Wales again, to add to the 57 First-Class caps he has made for Glamorgan and looking to build on the 448 First-Class wickets he has collected for both clubs.
Speaking of Harris going out on loan, Head Coach, Stuart Law, commented:
“The chance for Jimmy to play a couple of games for Glamorgan is a win for us. We have spoken to Jim about a few areas of his game we would like him to concentrate on, and for him to be able to do that in a First-Class arena will give us a better idea of where he’s at.
“He is certainly in our plans, and it will be great for him that when he is called upon, he has some decent match time under his belt.”
James Harris himself commented:
“I want to say a huge thanks to Glamorgan. I’m really looking forward to playing some cricket and it’s a great opportunity for me to play whilst I’m currently not in the Middlesex team, to show some form, and stake a case for later in the summer.”
