Leicestershire CCC is pleased to announce the signing of former Middlesex seamer Robbie Williams on a one-year deal.
Williams had been on trial with the club in the closing weeks of the 2012 season and appeared in the thrilling Second XI Final defeat by Kent, the county of his birth.
Williams bowled with good pace and bounce on that occasion and has generally impressed since coming to Grace Road.
The 25-year-old has taken 23 first-class wickets at under 33, with a best of 5-70. On Middlesex debut, Williams opened the bowling with England seamer Steve Finn and picked up 5-115 against Essex.
Chief Executive Mike Siddall said: “Robbie impressed whilst playing for the Second XI. He adds to the selection opportunities within the seam bowlers and we hope that he will make his mark at Grace Road.”
