Graeme White Signs for Northants
Northants Cricket is delighted to announce the signing of slow left arm spinner Graeme White on a two year contract. White enjoyed a very successful loan period here at the County Ground, where he took 7 wickets in 3 Friends Life t20 games for the Steelbacks.
The 26 year old returns to the County Ground after spending the last three seasons at Trent Bridge playing for Nottinghamshire, with whom he won the Yorkshire Bank 40 competition with this year. White has an excellent bowling record, especially in limited overs cricket, as he averages just 19 in Twenty20 cricket.
On signing for Northants, White said, “I've truly loved representing Nottinghamshire over the last few seasons and wish to thank Mick Newell, management and the team for helping to evolve my game during this period. It is such a fantastic team and club, which made it such a hard decision to make. But I feel the time is now right for a new challenge, so I'm delighted to be returning back to Northants CCC and excited by the opportunity to compete for a club whom I represented since their academy level. Northants have shown this summer that they possess a potent squad of cricketers, which I am thrilled to be joining and look forward to pursuing yet more silverware going into 2014."
David Ripley said, “It’s great to welcome Graeme back to the County Ground. He returns a better bowler than when he left and is hungry to push his career forward in all formats. He performed well while on loan last year and he slotted back into the changing room perfectly. I would like to thank Nottinghamshire for their help in allowing Graeme to leave, a very player centred decision.”
