Adam Rossington has put pen to paper to stay at The County Ground until at least the end of the 2022 season, signing a new one-year contract extension.

The Club’s red-ball Captain, Rossington is a key figure in all forms of cricket for Northamptonshire and was excited about committing his future to the club.

“I’m happy to have signed a new deal with Northamptonshire. These are exciting times being back in Division 1 when it goes back to two divisions.

“We have a strong group of players with a good mix of youth and experience in the changing room.” Rossington said.

Since making the switch from Middlesex in 2014, ‘Rosso’ has proven himself to be both a fine striker of the ball and a reliable figure behind the stumps. Boasting a first-class average of 35.33 and a T20 strike rate of 139.20 his importance in the changing room is unquestioned.

“Last year was a promising year, it was good to have a look at some younger lads in the Bob Willis Trophy so I’m pleased we took that approach to the competition. It was a fantastic opportunity for players who hadn’t had much time in the middle to have a chance to show the fans what they’re about.

“It was positive making the knockout stages of the Blast last year after a mixed group stage, but obviously a pretty disappointing Quarter-Final performance in Bristol. We’re hopeful that we can put that right this year and be at Edgbaston in September.”

With all three formats set to resume in 2021, Rossington believes this will be an exciting season for Northamptonshire.

“We’ve got the squad now to challenge in all competitions, including a world class overseas singing in Mohammed Nabi for the Vitality Blast. It’s definitely an exciting time to be a Northamptonshire supporter.”
