Club Statement: Zampa & Henriques


Essex County Cricket Club can today confirm the termination of Adam Zampa’s and Moises Henriques’ contracts for this year’s Vitality Blast campaign by mutual consent.

Zampa was due at The Cloudfm County Ground for his third stint with the Eagles, having played an important role in the side’s success last year, whilst Henriques had signed up for his first spell with Simon Harmer’s side.

Derek Bowden, Chief Executive at Essex Cricket, said: “The last few months have been extremely difficult and whilst we prepare for a shortened domestic season, there are still uncertainties and restrictions which means this is the most sensible decision going forward.

“It’s a shame as Adam is a fan favourite at Chelmsford and a popular member of the dressing room, whilst we also feel that we had recruited well by bringing in Moises. However, but we still believe we have a squad that is more than capable of defending the title.

“I would like to thank Adam, Moises and their representative teams for their understanding of the current situation and the impact it’s having on the game.”

Essex’s Overseas signings are in partnership with Seven Investment Management, the Eagles’ Vitality Blast shirt sponsor.
