7 Nov 2022 | Cricket

Glamorgan Cricket is pleased to announce that seamer Harry Podmore has signed a multi-year contract with the Club.

Podmore, 28, is no stranger to Glamorgan supporters having previously enjoyed loan spells with the Welsh county in 2016 and 2017 where he played four first-class matches and took nine wickets.

He began his career with Middlesex before moving to Kent, where he twice took more than 50 wickets in a season in Division One of the County Championship, and played a central role in the Royal London Cup title-winning campaign earlier this year.

Across his career, Podmore has played 53 first-class matches, taking 167 wickets at an average of 26.76. He has also made 26 List A and 23 T20 appearances.

On signing for Glamorgan, Harry Podmore said: “Speaking with Mark Wallace and some of the players, it is easy to understand the sense of ambition and excitement around the Club.

"I can’t wait to join this journey and make a difference, on and off the field. I strongly believe my best cricket lies ahead of me, and look forward to thriving in all formats.”

Director of cricket, Mark Wallace, said: “We’re delighted Harry has agreed to join us on a multi-year contract.

"He’s a very talented bowler who can bowl long and consistent spells and will bolster our attack across the formats.

"Having known him from his loan spells here, we are certain he will fit in well in the dressing room.

"He is at the age where his peak years lie ahead and can perform across all formats. We’re excited to have him join us at the Club.”
