Liam Trevaskis Signs Three-Year Deal With Leicestershire CCC
Leicestershire CCC is excited to announce the signing of left-arm spinner Liam Trevaskis on a three-year deal, effective from the 2024 season.
The 24-year-old, who will make the move south from Durham to join the Foxes, has taken 125 wickets and scored just shy of 2,000 runs across all three formats during his seven seasons in the north to date.
The announcement follows an impressive Metro Bank One Day Cup campaign for the Carlisle-born bowler, with Trevaskis claiming 12 wickets at 26.91 and registering 192 runs at an average of 32 from his seven matches. Such figures included new List A career bests with both bat and ball, smashing a crucial unbeaten 76 in the victory over Derbyshire, while becoming the first-ever Durham player to take a List A hat-trick en route to figures of 4/50 against Worcestershire.
Trevaskis has also shown his prominence in T20 cricket, captaining Durham during the 2022 season and sitting sixth in the county’s all-time wicket-taking charts in the format – with 56 scalps snared at 29.62.
His best figures of 4/16 arose at Old Trafford in 2018, with the former England Under-19 international’s outstanding final over heralded as one of the finest in Blast history. The then-19-year-old took three wickets and conceded just one run during a match-winning finale to snatch victory against Lancashire.
The left-hander has also demonstrated his capabilities with the bat in all formats, averaging above 30 in first-class cricket, 23.04 in List A cricket, and 14.57 while striking at above 125 in the shortest form.
Discussing the decision to move to Uptonsteel County Ground, Trevaskis said: “I am very excited to be joining Leicestershire for the next part of my career.
“Now is the right time for me to be playing regularly across all formats, which is something that Leicestershire was able to offer me. The team looks in a great place, with talent across the board and quality overseas players.
“I’m hoping to make a positive impact and I look forward to helping the club win games in the seasons to come.”
Director of Cricket, Claude Henderson, added: “We are extremely excited to welcome Liam to Leicestershire. He has proven to be a tough competitor on the pitch and comes with a great set of skills across all facets of the game, which will benefit the team in all three formats."
“Liam is a great addition to our squad for next season and we will have news on more exciting acquisitions to share in the coming weeks.”
