Gunn & Moore is delighted to announce that Middlesex and England opening batsman Sam Robson has signed a long-term deal to use GM equipment for the upcoming season 2019 season and beyond.
The Middlesex vice-captain already has one of the most enviable cricket CV’s in the County game with 21 First Class hundreds, including a Test Match hundred against Sri Lanka in just his third international innings.
"I'm excited to be using such a famous name as Gunn & Moore,” said Robson. “After having a tour of the factory and meeting Richard and the team, I can't wait to get out there for Middlesex in April using Gunn & Moore bats."
Robson represented Australia at u-19 level, but it was England that came calling in 2014 thanks to a lengthy run of form, notching 1,300 runs in the 2013 season at an average of 47. To date he has earned 7 Test caps for England scoring 336 runs against Sri Lanka and India, a record he is keen to add to with the help of the new Noir L555 DXM.
"We are naturally delighted to have the chance to work with Sam moving forward,” said Richard Harris, GM’s Head of Sponsorship. “Sam has the ability to score a huge number of domestic runs and we look forward to providing him with the tools to achieve his goal of playing international cricket again."
In 2016 he was pivotal in Middlesex’s County Championship title win, scoring 899 runs at an average of 45 with three hundreds, including his highest First Class score of 231. The 29-year-old also holds a unique record, having scored the earliest First Class hundred in the UK and the first in March, against Durham MCCU on 31 March 2012.
2019 promises to be a big season for Robson and Middlesex as they seek promotion back to Division One of the County Championship. He will take the field alongside his captain and fellow GM teammate Dawid Malan, as the pair hope to lead the way for their side with the help of the new GM 2019 range.
