NEW SIGNING: Miller signs for Sussex03-Apr-2013
Sussex County Cricket Club are delighted to be able to announce the signing of right-arm seamer Andrew Miller on a one-year contract, with the bowler having been on trial with the County for the past month.
25 year-old Miller has most recently been with Warwickshire having begun his career with his home County of Lancashire. He was released by the Edgbaston outfit at the end of the 2012 season having taken 35 wickets in 18 first-class matches.
He travelled with Sussex to both Port Elizabeth and Dubai on their recent pre-season tours and after performing well, he has been awarded a contract for the 2013 season.
Miller said of his move to Sussex, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be given this opportunity at a Club like Sussex. I had a fantastic pre-season and everything has progressed really well with the trips to Port Elizabeth and Dubai.
“I am really looking forward to making an impact within the squad as we go forward.”
Sussex’s Professional Cricket Manager Mark Robinson said, “Andrew has worked really hard to get this opportunity. He has come from having nothing to earning the right to having a contract through hard work and perseverance.
“We’ve been impressed by his attitude, commitment and the repeatability of his action. As a bowler, he is different to our other seamers and hopefully he will kick on from here.”
