Angus Robson, who is brother of Middlesex opener Sam, is an opener who was given his first-class debut in 2013. The batsman clearly has plenty of potential and has signed a deal to keep him at Grace Road until at least the end of the 2014 season.
The 21-year-old was born in New South Wales but holds a British passport. He demonstrated good technique in accumulating runs in Second XI three-day fixtures in 2012, including two superb tons against Gloucestershire and Nottinghamshire. Robson's knock of 98 during a Trophy game at Northamptonshire also caught the eye.
Robson continued to impress in the Seconds in 2013 and was given his first-class bow at Gloucestershire. The opener made a best score of 49 in the second innings at Bristol - it was such a shame he narrowly missed out on would have been a well-deserved half-century.
