Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that Eoin Morgan has been awarded a Testimonial Year in 2020.

Morgan, 33, made his Middlesex first eleven debut a week after his nineteenth birthday in September 2005 and his first-class debut for the club the following June, having first represented the club’s second eleven at the age of just sixteen.

He has since gone on to make over 250 appearances for the club in all three domestic formats, scoring almost 9,000 runs, with a highest individual score of 191 against Nottinghamshire in the County Championship at Trent Bridge in 2014.

For England, Morgan has made over 300 international appearances, scoring over 9,000 runs, and most notably led his country to the ICC World Cup trophy this summer on that memorable day at the Home of Cricket in July.

He has been a magnificent servant to Middlesex Cricket for a decade and a half and has been an outstanding ambassador and figurehead for Middlesex, for English cricket and for the game at large.

Speaking of Eoin being awarded a testimonial year, Angus Fraser, Middlesex Cricket’s Managing Director of Cricket commented:

“Eoin’s teenage move from Dublin to London, his development from a shy sixteen year-old boy that played Second Eleven cricket for Middlesex into the man that guided England to World Cup glory at Lord’s is almost a fairy-tale like story. It is also something that everyone at Middlesex Cricket should be extremely proud of.

“Eoin’s journey has involved him playing more than 265 games of cricket for Middlesex and becoming the club’s most capped England player. What makes it even better is that the story, with both Middlesex and England, is not over yet.

“These achievements more than merit a Testimonial and I am sure Eoin will receive the support his career deserves.”

Eoin Morgan himself said:

“It is a huge honour for me to be awarded a Testimonial Year in 2020.

“I’m extremely proud to have been at Middlesex since the age of sixteen and everyone at the club has played a part in me becoming the person and player I am today. I am very grateful for their support and guidance.”
