Corey Collymore Signs For Sussex On Kolpak Deal
The reigning county champions were left with limited fast bowling stocks with the departure of Ryan Harris following his signing of a contract with Queensland, but Collymore, a proven international performer, will add strength to the squad.
Mark Robinson, Professional Cricket Manager, said: “Obviously with the departure of Ryan Harris, we have been keen to bring in a new bowler. With his international experience and excellent work ethic, Corey fits the bill perfectly.”
Collymore added: “The call from Sussex the other day was a very welcome one. I've been itching to come over and play county cricket and to be picked by the Champions has filled me with confidence. I'm ready to give it my all and can't wait to get started.”
Collymore, 30, played in 30 Tests for the West Indies and 84 One Day Internationals and also spent time at Warwickshire in 2003 while he has been a regular in Barbados' line up since making his first-class debut in 1999.
