London: August 4, 2014

Recalled England fast bowler Steven Finn has signed a new three-year contract with Middlesex, the England county side announced on Monday.

“I am delighted to have signed three more years at the club I have spent my whole career with as a professional cricketer,” Finn said on the Middlesex website. “I look forward to continuing to build on the club’s status as a strong Division One side and hopefully helping to bring success to the county over years to come.”

Finn, 25, was restored to the England squad in place of the injured Liam Plunkett last week, having been sent home early from the Ashes tour of Australia due to a pronounced loss of form. He played no part in England’s 5-0 series defeat Down Under and was subsequently declared “unselectable” by then limited-overs coach Ashley Giles.

But he has impressed for Middlesex this season, claiming 44 wickets at an average of 29.72, and he paid tribute to coach Richard Johnson for helping him put his recent woes behind him. “Needless to say, I am hugely indebted to the club and the coaching structure, particularly Johnson, in helping me develop in recent times,” added Finn, who made his first-class debut for Middlesex in 2005 at the age of 16. “I couldn’t think of anywhere else I would want to play my cricket.”

Middlesex managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said: “This news, and the fact Steven has been selected in England’s squad for the fourth Test against India at Old Trafford, is great for the club. “Middlesex are extremely proud to have developed Steven and to have helped him achieve what he has, so far in the game.”
