We are delighted to announce that 23-year-old Australian wicketkeeper-batsman, Cameron Bancroft will return to Gloucestershire Cricket in 2017.
Bancroft, who was signed for the first two months of the 2016 season, will be available for the whole of the 2017 season.
He will predominantly play Championship Cricket for Gloucestershire, with the option to play white ball cricket if the opportunity arises.
Bancroft, who has recently been touted as a Test debutant in Australia’s up-coming matches against South Africa & Pakistan, is set to return to the Brightside Ground ahead of the start of the County Championship season in March 2017.
Bancroft said: “Last year was fantastic to be a part of this great club. There’s an excellent culture and we showed we can be really competitive in all forms. I can’t wait to get back over and score runs for the team and hopefully continue to grow and move our way up in division 2.”
“I had an awesome time with my teammates and I’m itching to play some good cricket for the club.”
Gloucestershire Chief Executive, Will Brown, said: “We are delighted to have signed Cameron for the 2017 season and we are looking forward to seeing him return to play in a Gloucestershire shirt.”
