Hankins Extends Gloucestershire Contract

George Hankins commits his future to Gloucestershire with new contract.

Gloucestershire Cricket are delighted to announce that young batsman George Hankins has signed an extended contract until the end of the 2019 season.

It has been a season to remember for Hankins in 2016. The 19 year old scored a superb maiden century of 116 for Gloucestershire away at Northants in the Specsavers County Championship which led to him picking up the Champagne Moment Award at the End of Season Awards Dinner in the Bristol Pavilion.

Not only has George impressed with the bat for Gloucestershire, he was also named England Under 19s’ man-of-the-series against Sri Lanka.

The 19-year-old scored 188 runs at an average of 62.66 in the three match one-day contest. He was chosen by Sri Lanka’s coaching staff as man-of-the-series after scoring 98 and 79 in his last two matches for England.

George Hankins said, “I’m delighted to be extending my deal with Gloucestershire Cricket through to 2019. I’ve really enjoyed my first full year at the Club and the opportunities I’ve had to play both International and First XI cricket and can’t wait for the next season to start with an opportunity to try and cement a regular spot in all formats.”

Gloucestershire Chief Executive Will Brown said, “We are absolutely thrilled that George has extended his contract with Gloucestershire Cricket for a further 3 years. His first year at the Club has seen him turn in good performances for the Gloucestershire First XI including a hard fought century at the end of the season; it’s also seen him win International honours with the England U19 squad including a man of the series award for the ODI series against Sri Lanka. It’s a pleasure to have him at the Club.”
