A teenager with a big future, 19-year-old Sammy has captained the Nottinghamshire academy for the past two seasons and made his first XI debut against Glamorgan in last year’s Royal London Cup.
For his county’s U18s, the seam bowling all-rounder scored 577 runs at an average of 32.06 and took 24 wickets at 22.83.
Nottinghamshire’s Head Coach, Peter Moores, noted:
“Sam is a player who has shown real capability with bat, with ball and as a leader. We were able to embed him within the first team set up for much of the Royal London Cup, and the progression he made in that small window served to show how high his ceiling is, and how determined he is to succeed as a professional.”
