Warwickshire County Cricket Club has agreed a three-year contract extension with Academy graduate and England Under 19s batsman Dan Mousley, which secures his future at Edgbaston until at least the end of the 2023 season.
The current Berkswell CC, and former Kenilworth Wardens CC and Nether Whitaker CC, batsman attended Bablake School in Coventry has been part of Warwickshire’s Performance Pathway since the age of eight.
He signed his first profession contract in May 2019 and subsequently made his First Class debut for the Bears later that year, making two further appearances in this year’s Bob Willis Trophy and three in the Vitality Blast, contributing 250 runs across both formats.
Mousley was also the leading run scorer for England at this year’s ICC Under 19s World Cup with 241 runs in five innings, including a 111 in the Plate final victory over Sri Lanka.
Paul Farbrace, Director of Cricket at Warwickshire CCC, said: “Dan is one of the most exciting young batsman in the county game and it’s fantastic for all associated with Warwickshire CCC that he has committed to the Club long-term.
“He broke through to the senior ranks in both formats last season and made a notable contribution in each fixture. Dan now has a great opportunity to firmly establish himself across all three formats and become a mainstay of this Warwickshire team for many years.”Paul Farbrace
Mousley is one of six Warwickshire young cricketers to have stepped up from the Academy to the senior men’s team squad in the last two years. Four further Academy graduates, Marie Kelly, Issy Wong, Bethan Ellis and Georgia Hennessy, were recently named in the England & Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) group of 41 women’s cricketers to be awarded professional contracts.
“It means a huge amount to me to represent my home county and I’m thrilled to secure my long-term future as a Bear,” said Mousley.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my initial time in the senior men’s squad since stepping up last season and it’s been great to make this journey with a few of my closest friends who I’ve played county age group cricket with.
“With so many young players in the squad, it’s a very exciting time to be a Bear and I’m committed to working harder than ever to repay the faith that the coaches and management have shown in me and hopefully help us to win trophies in the near future.”
