Tom Lace Signs with Gloucestershire

The 22-year-old English batsman has signed a three-year contract with Gloucestershire. 

Tom Lace, the 10th highest run-scorer in Division Two, who has topped the batting charts during the 2019 County season while playing for Derbyshire, has now signed up a three-year contract with Gloucestershire.  

With their new player acquisition, Gloucestershire head coach Richard Dawson is thrilled to have Lace join the team. He says, ‘We're absolutely delighted Tom has joined the Club. He's a very talented young batsman with a great work ethic and he will be a great addition to the changing room. Last season we saw first-hand, when he played for Derbyshire, how good a batsman he is and now we look forward to him scoring runs for Gloucestershire’. 

Lace originally used to play for Middlesex before being loaned out to Derbyshire for the past two seasons. In a span of 16 first-class games, he has already managed to score a total of 1084 runs at an average of 36.13.

Asked about his new team, Lace says, ‘I'm delighted to have signed for Gloucestershire for the next three years. I'm looking forward to hitting the ground running and helping the team to more success’. 

‘Bristol is a brilliant city and Gloucestershire is a county full of hungry and talented young players. I'm hugely grateful to everyone at the Club for the opportunity to be a part of that’, he added. 

Having passed the required medical tests, Lace will already start playing for the team’s next Bob Willis Trophy match against Glamorgan this Saturday. To learn more about Gloucestershire, check out Betwala.
