Toby Pettman Signs Two-Year Deal To Remain With Nottinghamshire

Seamer Toby Pettman has signed a two-year contract extension which will see him remain at Trent Bridge until 2024.

The right-armer has furthered his development with Nottinghamshire since joining permanently in 2020, finishing 2022 as the country’s third top wicket-taker in the Second XI Championship with 37, at an average of 20.67.

The 24-year-old made his List A debut for the club in the Royal London Cup in the same season, claiming standout figures of 4/44 against Surrey at Welbeck in his second match.

Pettman also made three LV= Insurance County Championship appearances during respective loan periods with Kent and Derbyshire, taking nine wickets at an average of 27.44.

“I’m delighted to be continuing my cricketing journey with Nottinghamshire,” said Pettman.

“We have a great group of people here, who have helped me make enormous improvements in my own game, and we have an opportunity to achieve considerable success as a team in the coming years.

“2022 was another enjoyable season for me, making my County Championship and List A debuts, alongside taking the most wickets of any seam bowler in the Second Eleven Championship.

“I’m grateful for the support I’ve received, particularly from Kevin Shine, and I’m excited to see what the next couple of years have in store.”

Pettman made the move to Nottinghamshire after impressing Paul Franks and Kevin Shine at Loughborough University as part of a Centres of Excellence trial.

Prior to that, he captained Oxford MCCU, collecting 33 wickets in seven First-Class games.

In 2021, Pettman claimed 32 dismissals in the Second XI Championship, at an average of 26.25.

“Toby has had a fantastic season. He’s dominated Second Eleven cricket and impressed everyone during our Royal London campaign,” said Head Coach Peter Moores.

“His relationship with Kevin Shine has blossomed over the last two seasons, helping Toby realise his potential.

“His height and upright action create steep bounce and he continues to increase his level of skill and consistency as a bowler.

“He’s also a great advert for the current loan system. Both Derby and Surrey used him to supplement their squads, providing him with invaluable experience.

“Importantly this showed how far Toby has come in the last twelve months, performing admirably for both Counties.

“He will use this winter to gain more valuable playing experience in Australia and we’re all excited about what he will bring to the squad next season.”
