Tom Taylor to leave Foxes at the end of his contract

Leicestershire County Cricket Club has announced that all-rounder Tom Taylor will leave the Club at the end of his contract.

Following extensive talks between all parties over the last few months, Taylor has decided to reject the improved terms offered by the Running Foxes.

Taylor is free to join a new county on 1 November 2020 and Leicestershire CCC has therefore decided not to select him for any of the remaining Vitality Blast fixtures.

The 25-year-old Taylor joined from Derbyshire CCC ahead of the 2018 campaign and made eight first-class appearances for Leicestershire CCC, scoring 234 runs at 29.25 with 32 wickets taken at 23.40 apiece.

Taylor played seven times in List A cricket, scoring 242 runs at 48.40 while claiming eight wickets at 47.12 and represented the Foxes on five occasions in Vitality Blast, scoring 42 runs at 8.40 and taking two wickets at 43.

Chief Executive Sean Jarvis said: “We made Tom a very good offer to reflect both his performances and how much we valued him, and are extremely disappointed to lose Tom having supported him through previous injuries.

“It is a huge week ahead in terms of Vitality Blast qualification and we have made the decision to give other players the chance to stake their claim for selection in the best interests of the Club.

“We would like to thank Tom for his contribution over the last three years and wish him well for the future.”
