Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that young right-arm seamer Max Harris has signed an extension to his rookie contract with the Club.
Harris, 21, first signed rookie professional terms with Middlesex in April 2021, before extending his contract for a further year at the end of 2021. This latest extension will see him remain at Middlesex until at least the end of 2023.
Harris missed out on making his debut in 2021 after picking up an injury, however after a long wait he made his debut for the Club earlier this year against Somerset at Lord’s in the Vitality Blast, striking with just his second ball and picking up two wickets on his maiden appearance.
He made five further appearances this year, once in the Blast and four in the Royal London Cup, picking up eleven wickets in total, including a three wicket haul against Sussex in the Club’s last white-ball clash of the summer.
Speaking of Harris earning a further extension to his contract, Middlesex’s Director of Cricket, Alan Coleman, commented:
“We are really pleased to have secured Max’s services for a further year and are looking forward to seeing his game continue to develop over the year ahead.
“He is a local lad, one of several to come through North Middlesex Cricket Club’s ranks, and as a graduate of our Elite Player Programme it is always good to see one of your own make progress in the game.
“He is a hard-working, popular member of our dressing room, who bowls with genuine pace and skill, and always plays with a smile on his face. We all wish Max every success over the coming year.”
Max Harris himself commented:
“I am buzzing to have extended my stay at Middlesex for another year.
“I’ve loved my time here so far and feel like I’m progressing well, especially last year when making my debut in both white-ball formats.
“I’m looking forward to contributing towards some team success next year.”
