George Scott Signs Three-year Deal with Gloucestershire CCC
Gloucestershire Cricket is thrilled to announce the signing of 23-year-old all-rounder George Scott on a three-year deal.
Scott, a right-hand bat and medium-fast bowler, joins the Club from Middlesex after spending four seasons with the London based team.
George credited the atmosphere at Gloucestershire as a large factor in why he chose to join the Club:
“I’m very excited, I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for me cricket-wise and I know Bristol is a lovely place,” he said.
“It seems like there is an incredibly family feel here. I’ve met a few of the guys and I know Higgo (Ryan Higgins) well and it feels like a really nice atmosphere at the Club so I’m absolutely delighted to be joining.”
A reliable contributor in both one-day and four-day cricket, George averaged over 35 runs in both the Royal London One-Day Cup and Vitality Blast in 2019 with strike rates of 138 and 101 respectively. He also contributed over 200 runs to the County Championship side.
Scott has featured for Middlesex as a middle order batsman in all competitions and has shown his ability as a bowler amongst a strong Middlesex bowling unit.
An interesting stat from this season is that George accumulated the highest number of not outs for Middlesex in both white ball competitions (three in RL50, five in VB).
Head Coach Richard Dawson is very excited to have George in Bristol:
“It’s great to have George joining us. He’s got huge potential as both a batter and bowler in all formats of the game.
All the players and coaching staff are looking forward to him starting with us and we hope we can help him realise his potential in the years to come.”
The Hertfordshire born all-rounder made his First-class debut at 19 for Leeds/Bradford MCCU before impressive Second XI performances for the Seaxes earned him a three-year contract at Middlesex.
George will join the team when the squad returns to the Bristol County Ground for Winter training later in the year.
