New Contract For All-Rounder Liam Dawson
The left-arm spinner and middle order batsman, is one of the country’s most exciting young players and he has already represented England at Under-19 level in four Youth Tests and 18 Youth ODIs. He has played a major role with both bat and ball, in Hampshire’s return to form in the second half of this season, including picking up two Man-of-the-Match awards in NatWest Pro40 matches.
Earlier this month Dawson was nominated alongside England and Nottinghamshire seamer Stuart Broad, England and Essex all-rounder Ravi Bopara and Kent opener Joe Denly for the prestigious Young Cricketer of the Year Award.
Giles White, acting Team Manager said:
"The long term deal that Liam has been offered reflects how highly he is regarded. We see him playing a big part in Hampshire Cricket’s future. I can’t think of a more exciting young prospect in the country."
Liam Dawson said:
"I’m delighted to have signed a new 3 year contract with Hampshire. The Club has shown a lot of faith in me and I hope to repay with good performances."
