Peter Siddle first signed for the Club in 2018 where he became an instant favourite with his teammates and the Essex supporters, taking 37 wickets. The experienced International seamer adds a wealth of experience to a youthful bowling attack, and has become instrumental to the team’s on-pitch success.

The 34-year-old committed his future to Essex in 2019 by signing a two-year contract. Although not eligible for the Vitality Blast, Siddle played in the Royal London One-Day Cup but it’s Specsavers County Championship where he has really made his mark.

Although the pandemic prevented the Australian from making a return in 2020, Siddle joined up with his Essex teammates for the 2021 campaign as the overseas player alongside Simon Harmer.
