Middlesex Cricket are delighted to announce that young quick bowler, Max Harris, has been awarded a rookie professional contract until the end of the 2021 season.

Harris, a nineteen-year-old right-arm paceman, is another product of the Middlesex Academy and County Age Group pathway and is now one of four current young Middlesex cricketers to have come from North Middlesex Cricket Club, following Ethan Bamber, Luke Hollman and Joe Cracknell into the Club’s professional ranks.

Harris made his Second Eleven debut for the Club in June 2019, against Somerset, and is currently studying at Loughborough University. His rookie contract will allow him the time to continue his studies whilst also representing Middlesex Cricket.

Speaking of Harris being awarded his first professional contract, Middlesex Head Coach, Stuart Law, commented:

“We see an exciting young player in Max, and the way he goes about his cricket is something we like.

“He can bowl with good pace and can hit the ball a long way. With a bit of fine tuning, I’m sure we can help him become a good all round cricketer.

“I look forward to working with Max during the year ahead.”

Harris himself said:

“I feel very privileged to receive a professional contract.

“It’s a big relief after a lot of hard work and huge amounts of support from all my coaches and family.

“I’m very excited to keep developing my game and hopefully put in match winning performances for the Club whenever I get the chance.”
