Sam Northeast: Yorkshire signs Hampshire drummer on short-term loan
Yorkshire signed a short term loan with Hampshire batsman Sam Northeast.
The 31-year-old will be available until July 15 and will be available for two Championship games and a T20 game against Notts Outlaws.
Northeast, who began his career with Kent, has scored over 10,000 first-class races, including 25 hundred, and nearly 6,000 in white ball cricket.
He hasn’t played for Hampshire since their T20 Blast opener this summer against Kent on June 9.
“We are delighted to be able to cover players currently with England or injured with a batsman of Sam’s quality,” said Yorkshire cricket manager Martyn Moxon.
“Given the strength of our County Championship squad, the next two games could go a long way in determining the top two spots, so Sam will give us valuable experience and batting depth.
“Sam will also be available for the Vitality Blast game when Mark Stoneman returns to Surrey.”
Yorkshire, who are currently second in the Championship group, travel to Northamptonshire on Sunday followed by a Roses home game against Lancashire a week later.
Hampshire has already signed a replacement for Northeast, with the Middlesex batsman Nick Gubbins joins them Friday for the rest of the season.
