Middlesex County Cricket Club can today announce that Harry Podmore will be joining Glamorgan County Cricket Club on loan until 26 May 2016.
Podmore, 21, will join Glamorgan on 4 April and be available to play red ball cricket for Glamorgan in their opening first-class match of the season against Cardiff MCCU and in their first six Division Two County Championship matches across the first two months of the season, before re-joining Middlesex in readiness for the club’s white ball campaigns.
Middlesex’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said…
"Harry continues to develop nicely as a cricketer. He had a good year in the 2nd XI in 2015 and played a prominent role in their success. Harry is ready to get his teeth into first-class cricket and, with the fast bowling resources we currently have, we do not see him starting in the 1st XI. The loan to Glamorgan to play first-class cricket in April and May will hopefully provide all three parties with what they are looking for. When not playing for Glamorgan 1st XI Harry can return to London to practice his white ball skills, as we do see him featuring in our T20 and 50-over cricket."
“I am really looking forward to joining Glamorgan for the opening two months of the season and am extremely grateful to both parties for giving me this great opportunity to help develop my career.
“The current strength of the Middlesex seam attack has made it difficult for me to break into the County Championship side, and with limited opportunities available to play red ball cricket here, this is an ideal way for me to not only gain invaluable experience in this format of the game, but also to hopefully help Glamorgan get off to a good start in their own Championship campaign.”
