SAM ROBSON EXTENDS CONTRACT WITH MIDDLESEX

MIDDLESEX OPENER SAM ROBSON EXTENDS HIS CONTRACT WITH THE CLUB TO END OF 2024

Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that Sam Robson has today signed an extension to his playing contract with the Club, which will see the experienced opener remain at Lord’s until at least the end of 2024.

Robson, 32, has been a Middlesex player since joining the Club as an eighteen-year-old and made his debut in the List-A format against Worcestershire in the 2008 season – the first of 22 appearances he has made in the one-day format of the game for Middlesex.

In T20 cricket he has made just seven appearances since making his debut in 2011, however it is in Middlesex’s red-ball side that Robson has carved himself out a reputation as one of the most consistent and prolific openers in the English game.

In 161 appearances for the Club he has amassed 10,082 runs in the First-Class game since making his debut in 2009 and has 22 centuries to his name - four of which he has converted to double hundreds.

A brilliant 2013 season, in which he comfortably passed 1,000 runs, and an impressive start to the 2014 season, in which he was averaging a shade under 50 in the County Championship, saw him selected for the England Test side and make his debut against Sri Lanka that year in June - the first of seven Test caps he received. A century in just his second Test remains his highest international score, when he hit 127 against the Sri Lankans at Headingley, and his recent impressive form has led to many in the game calling for his return to the international stage.

Speaking of Robson committing his future to the Club, Head of Men’s Performance Cricket, Alan Coleman, said:

“Robbo has been one of the leading domestic four-day batters in recent years, and I am delighted we’ve been able to secure his services for the next three seasons.

“He offers us stability, consistency and a lot of batting quality at the top of our order, and we can’t wait to watch him in action again in 2022 and beyond.”

On signing his contract extension with the Club, Robson himself commented:

“I am delighted to have re-signed with Middlesex.

“I signed with the Club as an eighteen-year-old and have thoroughly enjoyed calling Lord’s my home and playing for one of the most famous and well-renowned domestic cricket teams in the world.

I feel like I have kept improving as a player in recent years and am looking forward to what will hopefully be a successful time ahead for both the club and myself.”
