George Rhodes to join ahead of schedule

Leicestershire CCC is delighted to announce that all-rounder George Rhodes will be joining ahead of schedule.

The 25-year-old initially penned a three-year deal to sign for Leicestershire CCC from Worcestershire CCC at the end of the season.

He will now link up with the Foxes on loan in the Specsavers County Championship for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. Rhodes will also be permitted to play in Second XI cricket for the Foxes.

Rhodes remains available for Worcestershire Rapids in Vitality Blast, and can be recalled in line with ECB regulations if the Pears require him.

Leicestershire CCC Head Coach Paul Nixon said: “It is great news that we are able to have George available to us in September around his Vitality Blast commitments at Blackfinch New Road.

“I’d like to thank everyone at Worcestershire CCC for their assistance with allowing George to link up with us early.”
