Hankins extends contract

December 19 2018

Talented young batsman George Hankins has extended his contract with Gloucestershire County Cricket Club until the end of the 2021 season.

The 21-year-old, who is a graduate of the Club’s Cricket Academy, signed his first professional contract for Gloucestershire in 2016.

Hankins, who was the top run scorer for Gloucestershire in the 2018 Royal London One-Day Cup, scored 291 runs at an average of 58.20.

His strong performances in the Royal London One-Day Cup earned him a call up to play for an ECB XI against India A in a one-day contest at Edgbaston.  Unfortunately, George’s terrific start to the 2018 campaign was cut short after he sustained a knee injury in July while playing for the Second XI, this would see him miss the remainder of the season.

Gloucestershire Head Coach, Richard Dawson said: “It's great news that George has extended his contract with Gloucestershire.  He has continued to develop over the past seasons and I'm delighted that he can continue to progress with us.”
