Bears trio agree new deals ahead of NatWest T20 Blast Finals Day


With NatWest T20 Blast Finals Day at Edgbaston just five days away, Warwickshire CCC has been boosted by batsman Laurie Evans and fast bowlers Oliver Hannon-Dalby and Richard Jones signing new deals with the Club.

Evans (26) has played a key role in the Bears’ road to NatWest T20 Blast Finals Day, with 221 runs at an average of 31.57. He joined from Surrey in 2010 and has now signed a three-year contract extension to remain at Edgbaston until at least the end of the 2017 season.

Hannon-Dalby (25) joined Warwickshire from his native Yorkshire ahead of the 2013 season. He has been a regular in the NatWest T20 Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup squads for the Bears this season and has signed a two-year contract extension.

Warwickshire initially signed Jones (27) from Worcestershire at the end of the 2013. After making three LV= County Championship appearances for the Bears and enjoying a brief loan spell with Leicestershire, he has now signed a one-year extension for the 2015 season.

Dougie Brown, Director of Cricket for Warwickshire CCC, said: “We’re at a crucial time in the season where we’re competing for honours in all three competitions, so having Laurie, Oliver and Richard commit their immediate futures to Warwickshire is excellent news.

“All three players have made important, match-winning contributions to the team this season and we hope that there are many more outstanding performances to come from them in the future.”
