Coles signs for Hampshire
Hampshire have signed Matt Coles on a three-year contract.
Coles took an impressive 21 wickets at 24 while on loan from Kent, including 15 at 15.3 in his last two matches - and career-best match figures of 10-154 against Essex this week.
The 23-year old also struck half centuries against Worcestershire and Lancashire.
Coles said; “I'm delighted to have made the move to Hampshire a permanent one. In my short time here I've been very impressed with the way Giles White runs things. He has an excellent structure in place and a positive environment in which to develop and hone your skills.
“Hopefully, in the month I've been here, I have shown the guys that I'm capable of helping the team to achieve the results which will bring us promotion next season.
"Here everyone’s a similar age and it’s like playing with your mates. When that’s the case you enjoy it a bit more.”
