Patterson-White commits to Notts with four-year deal
Liam Patterson-White has extended his Nottinghamshire contract until the conclusion of the 2026 season.
The 24-year-old was the leading English spinner in the LV= Insurance County Championship last summer, taking 41 wickets at an average of 27.95.
He added a further 11 victims in the Royal London Cup at an economy-rate of 4.79, as well as contributing over 500 runs across both formats of the game.
A former international at under-19 level, Patterson-White earned his first England Lions call-up for a clash against South Africa in August and has since been selected in the winter touring party that recently arrived in the UAE.
He won the Green and Golds’ Uncapped Player of the Year Award for a second season in succession in 2022.
“Playing for Nottinghamshire means everything to me,” said the all-rounder.
“I’ve followed the club for my entire life and – having first represented the county aged ten – to have played a role in getting us back to the top division in red-ball cricket this year is something I’m very proud of.
“I still get ‘pinch me’ moments walking out at Trent Bridge alongside guys who have also come through the pathway, as well as international cricketers and those who have made a name here through prolonged success. It’s a special place, and I feel very privileged to play here.
“On the white-ball front, I have worked hard to develop my game, and that’s starting to come to fruition in the 50-over format, which is pleasing. I definitely harbour ambitions to play T20 cricket for the Outlaws, so hopefully I can realise that over the course of this contract as well.
“Obviously, earning my first Lions call-up this summer was special too, and I’ll continue to put in the hard yards to gain further honours for my country.”
Having made his debut in 2019, Patterson-White has been ever-present as the leading spin bowling option for Steven Mullaney’s red-ball side in each of the past two seasons.
The left-armer’s total tally of wickets in First-Class cricket stands at 87, in 34 appearances, at an average of 28.06.
“It’s always special when a player from your own pathway puts in the kind of performances Liam has done over the past two summers,” said Nottinghamshire Head Coach Peter Moores.
“We’ve been aware of his all-round capabilities for some time, and to see them come to fruition on the field has been great to witness.
“He’s taken on responsibility in the past two years as our lead spinner and he’s shouldered that well, but also remained humble and aware that he has lots still to learn in the game.
“He’s an ambitious player and his call-ups for the Lions have been just reward for his performances.
“Liam is a bowler who can contain and attack, and he has shown his capability with the bat in four-day and limited overs cricket as well. We’re excited about what he can do in the future.”
