8 Oct 2021 | Cricket

Glamorgan Cricket is thrilled to announce the signing of middle-order batsman Sam Northeast on a three-year deal.

Northeast, who joins from Hampshire, is one of the most consistent and experienced batsman in the county game.

Since his debut in 2007, he has made 182 first-class appearances, scoring 10,839 runs at 38.30 and has struck 25 centuries.

The 31-year-old also has a strong record in white-ball cricket having played 106 List A games, hitting 2,986 runs at an average of nearly 34 and has made 127 T20 appearances, scoring 2,966 runs at a strike rate of 128.

Northeast began his career at Kent before moving to Hampshire in 2018 where he was a key part of their One-Day Cup triumph that year and heavy run scoring the following season saw him earn England Lions honours. 

On signing for Glamorgan, Sam Northeast, said: “I’m extremely excited for the challenge ahead at Glamorgan.

“Next year is the perfect time to build on the Royal London Cup success the club achieved this summer.

“I still have a lot of ambition in the game and I believe Glamorgan share that with me.

“Speaking to Mark Wallace and Matt Maynard, I knew this was the right place for me to commit my future to.

“I am really looking forward to the next few years and the success we can have on the cricket pitch.”

Director of cricket, Mark Wallace, added: “Sam is one of the very best players in the county game and when we found out he was available we did everything we could to bring him to Wales.

“Signing Sam is fantastic news for everyone associated the club and to attract a player of his quality is a good sign of the direction the club is heading in. 

“He has a terrific record across all three formats and his versatility means he can bat in a number of different positions, while his experience will bring a lot to the changing room and help develop our younger players.”
