The 2013 LV= County Champions are delighted to announce that Irish International Wicket-keeper Stuart Poynter has signed a two year contract at Emirates Durham ICG.
The 23 year old former MCC Young cricketer has followed in Michael Richardson’s footsteps making the move to the North East from the Young cricketers.
Poynter has represented Middlesex and Warwickshire in first class cricket. Though it was his 172 against Durham 2nd XI in the 2nd XI Championship for the Young Cricketers that really caught the eye.
Poynter then joined up with the Durham 2nd XI for the rest of the 2013 summer. After some impressive displays with the bat, including a hundred against Leicestershire 2nd XI, the Irishman has earned himself a two year contract at Emirates Durham ICG.
A current Irish International, Poynter will be challenging Phil Mustard for the wicket keeping spot in the Durham First Team in 2014 as the Champions look to retain their crown.
