Luke Procter joins Northamptonshire on loan

Lancashire All-rounder Luke Procter has joined Northamptonshire County Cricket Club on loan for the remainder of the 2017 season.

The 29-year-old will be available for the remaining four County Championship games of the season as Northamptonshire make their final push for promotion.

Commenting on the move, Luke said: “I’m really looking forward to it. Simon Kerrigan and ex lancs lad Nathan Buck have both spoken really highly of the club which makes me feel a little more relaxed about joining up with the lads”.

The left hander has played 66 First Class matches for Lancashire, taking 74 wickets and making 2870 runs with a high score of 137.
“It’s great to have Luke with us for the final push” said Northamptonshire’s Head Coach, David Ripley. “He is an experienced cricketer who can come into the team and provide runs and wickets. I have always been impressed with his competitive nature. We have several injuries at the moment and his signing is a real boost for us”.

Northamptonshire’s Wicket-keeper Adam Rossington has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a badly broken thumb on Day 2 of the Specsavers County Championship match against Nottinghamshire. Similarly, Ben Sanderson has suffered a pulled hamstring and Nathan Buck has been out of action with a side strain.

Northamptonshire will face Sussex at home on Tuesday in an important fixture as they continue in their bid for promotion.
