Jack Plom leaves Essex


Essex bowler, Jack Plom has departed the Club following the end of his contract.

Plom came through the Essex Academy and featured eight times for England Under 19s before being named in the Essex First Team against Cambridge MCCU in 2018.

The 23-year-old’s breakthrough season came in 2020 when he made five T20 appearances, taking seven wickets.

The 2021 campaign was an opportunity for Plom to make his mark for the Eagles across both white-ball formats and went on to play eight Vitality Blast and five Royal London Cup games, including the semi-final against Glamorgan.

Head Coach Anthony McGrath said: “It is never easy deciding to let a player leave, especially when they are one of our own who has worked their way through the Academy.

“Jack has struggled with injuries this season and has found his opportunities limited with the wealth of young bowlers coming through our pathway system.
“We wish Jack well for his future.”

Everyone at Essex Cricket would like to thank Jack for his contribution throughout his time with the Club and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.
