Glamorgan County Cricket Club have agreed one year development contracts with young Welsh duo Connor Brown and Jeremy Lawlor.
All-rounder Brown (19) and batsman Lawlor (21) are both products of Glamorgan’s Academy having graduated through the Development Programme.
The pair are currently studying at Cardiff Metropolitan University and part of the Cardiff MCCU set up and both featured against Glamorgan in the first-class encounter earlier in the season
Lawlor from Cardiff scored an unbeaten half-century against Glamorgan in March and has renewed his development contract after being given his first taste of Championship cricket against Kent in the final home game of 2015. Since then he has played six first-class matches with a highest score of 81 against Hampshire for Cardiff MCCU last year.
Caerphilly born Brown has played a number of 2nd XI fixtures for Glamorgan before eventually making his first-class debut for Cardiff MCCU against Glamorgan, scoring 30.
“At the moment we are fortunate to have a number of talented young Welsh cricketers coming through our system and Connor and Jeremy are very good examples of that,” said Glamorgan chief executive and director of cricket Hugh Morris.
“Over the last year we have contracted six home-grown cricketers which bodes well for the future of the club and displays our ambition to produce and nurture young Welsh talent.
“We’ve seen players like Lukas Carey, David Lloyd and Aneurin Donald thrive in the team so opportunities are available and we expect to see more products from our highly rated Academy playing for Glamorgan in the future.”
