Northants extend Coles' loan stay

12th August 2019, 12:32 by Craig Smithson

Essex all-rounder Matt Coles has extended his loan stay with Northamptonshire until the end of their T20 Blast campaign.

The Steelbacks signed the 29-year-old former Kent, Hampshire and England Lions bowler at the start of June. He has made four County Championship appearances and featured in six T20 fixtures to date.

Coles had his first loan spell extended by another month in mid-July and will now stay until the end of the T20 Blast on August 30, as Northants look to qualify for the knockout stages via the North group.

Assistant coach Phil Rowe spoke highly of Coles when the club clinched his services.

He said: "He's a talented all-round cricketer. He's a player we've admired for a number of years, he's a big character and brings a big personality."
