Middlesex Cricket can today announce that Nathan Sowter will join Durham immediately, on loan, for the remainder of this year’s Vitality Blast competition. He will also be available for selection by Durham in red-ball cricket during the loan spell, which expires on July 16th.
The right-handed leg-break bowler has yet to feature for Middlesex’s first team this season, in either the LV= Insurance County Championship or the Vitality Blast.
He joins a Durham side who sit second bottom of the Blast’s North Group, having won two and lost five of the seven matches they have played in this year’s campaign to date, and face table-topping Lancashire at Chester-le-Street tonight.
On the decision to let Sowter join Durham on loan, Head of Men’s Performance Cricket, Alan Coleman, commented:
“Sowts hasn’t been selected for any first team action this year due to the progression of other players within the squad.
“We have made a conscious decision to give match experience and opportunities to those players, with an eye on building our longer-term plans.
“Sowts is a great bloke and we wish him every success during his loan spell with Durham at the Riverside.”
