Hankins extends contract
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.”
