Max Holden signs contract extension with Middlesex Cricket
Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that young top-order batter Max Holden has signed a contract extension until at least the end of the 2025 season.
Left-hander Holden, 24, signed his first professional contract with Middlesex in 2016 as a eighteen-year-old, having joined the Club as an eleven-year-old, before going on to make his Middlesex debut, aged 19, against Hampshire in the County Championship at Uxbridge Cricket Club in September 2017.
He has since made a total of 51 First-Class appearances, 20 List-A appearances and 38 Twenty20 appearances for the Club and has scored over 3,700 runs for the Club in all formats, including hundreds in each of the three forms of the game – one of only four players to have achieved this feat for the Club.
Until this season, his 166 at Canterbury against Kent was the highest ever score recorded by a batter in the Club’s List-A history.
This season Holden has been in terrific form in all three formats, with only Stephen Eskinazi surpassing the 1,144 runs Holden has amassed in 2022.
On signing his contract extension with Middlesex, Holden commented:
“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract - Middlesex is quite simply my home.
“From the moment I walked through the doors of the Finchley Indoor School as an eleven-year-old, it’s been my dream to represent this great Club. It is something I am incredibly proud to do and will never take for granted.
“I’m committed to giving my all over the next three years alongside my teammates, to help drive the Club back to where it belongs.”
Middlesex’s Head of Men’s Performance Cricket, Alan Coleman, commented:
“We are thrilled that Max has signed a long-term extension to his contract with Middlesex.
“He is an impressive young man, who works extremely hard at his game, and challenges himself to improve. He is a pleasure to work with.
“He is really important component in our side in all three formats of the game and is the only player who has been an ever present throughout the entirety of this season, playing every day of first eleven cricket this summer.
“We look forward to seeing Max’s game develop over the next few years and are thrilled to have secured his services for the future.
