PIOLET: Steffan signs for Sussex05-Nov-2013
Sussex CCC are delighted to announce the signing of all-rounder Steffan Piolet from Warwickshire on a one-year contract.
The 25 year-old Redhill-born player began his career in Sussex playing in the Sussex Premier League and made a handful of appearances in the Second Eleven, but moved to Warwickshire in 2008 before making a first-team appearance. He returned to Hove in the latter part of the 2013 season on a loan spell and made two Second Eleven appearances.
He has mainly been deployed as a one-day player during his stint at Edgbaston and the right-arm seamer is now hoping to make an impact across all three formats on his return to The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground.
Piolet said of his move, “I’m delighted to be back home with Sussex. I always wanted to play here at some point in my career and I'm looking forward to fighting for a place in all forms of the game.”
Sussex’s Professional Cricket Manager Mark Robinson said, “We’re really excited at the prospect of having Steff on board. Being a local lad, having played Youth and Second Team cricket with us, he is somebody we know really well.
“Steff has a hunger to play in the longer form of the game and the makeup of our squad means he has every chance of getting some opportunities to prove he is more than just a very good one-day player.
“We appreciate and admire Warwickshire’s willingness to do what is best for the player by releasing him and allowing us to pick up the last year of his contract.”
