Lawrence Signs Contract Extension


Essex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that top-order batsman, Dan Lawrence, has signed a contract extension and will stay with the Club until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Lawrence, 22, is an Essex Academy graduate and has made 64 first-class, 27 List A and 44 T20 appearances for the Club since making his debut in 2015.

The homegrown batsman had no hesitations in extending his contract and said: “I’m delighted to sign an extension and prolong my future with Essex.

“I’ve been at the Club since I was 10 and it was a really easy decision for me to make. Once the offer was put forward, it was just a case of signing on the dotted line.

“We have a really determined and ambitious group and I really believe we’re on the cusp of a long and successful era here at Essex.”

Head Coach Anthony McGrath is thrilled to see Lawrence extend his contract and said: “Dan is a really talented young batsman who has played an important role for us over the last few years and scored plenty of match-winning runs.

“He’s absolutely essential to what we are trying to build and achieve at the Club so it’s great news that he’s committed his future.”
