Goodman signs professional deal at Gloucestershire
All-rounder Dominic Goodman has revealed his delight after signing a first professional contract with Gloucestershire.
Goodman linked up with Gloucestershire's Academy in 2017 and has been working his way through the system over in the meantime.
The 19-year-old is a seam bowler and started to attract the attention of first-team coaches last term after breaking into Gloucestershire's Seconds.
He picked up two three-wicket hauls in encounters with Glamorgan and Sussex and has subsequently been offered hope of forcing his way into the senior set-up on a regular basis after signing a two-year deal.
Goodman told Gloucestershire's official website: "It's an unbelievable feeling. Gloucestershire as a club has so much history associated with it, not only that, it's such a great environment to be a part of.
"The players and coaches right through the set up are so welcoming and to get a chance to continue to work with them is amazing. From the time I started playing it's always been my goal to be a professional cricketer, and I can't wait to continue working hard for the club."
