Salisbury signs until 2020

Pace bowler Matt Salisbury has penned a contract until the end of the 2020 season after making a big impression while on loan at the Club.

The 25-year-old joined at the start of June & played a vital part in the Specsavers County Championship victory over Derbyshire on first-class debut with both bat & ball.

His impressive haul of 17 wickets in three first-class matches at an average of 24.71 earned him Eden Mill Player of the Month for June, alongside a defiant 25 off 147 balls to help Durham turn the match around against Derbsyhire.

And Jon Lewis moved quickly to make it a permanent deal for the ex-Essex & Hampshire seamer.

“Matt’s impact since joining us has been instant & I am thrilled we’ve been able to secure him for the rest of this season & two more beyond that,” Lewis said.

“We consider people’s characters very important, too, & he has fitted into the dressing room extremely well.

“He has a considerable skillset & we’re looking forward to seeing that develop further over the coming months & years with the Club.”
