Fidel Edwards re-signs with Hampshire for 2019 County Championship

After exceeding the 50-wicket milestone in 2018, fast bowler Fidel Edwards will return to Hampshire for this year’s County Championship season.

The veteran West Indies bowler has signed a one-year contract to commit to a fifth season with the team he claimed 54 wickets for in red-ball cricket last year.

“It’s great to have Fidel back with us again next season,” director of cricket Giles White said. “He’s been an important part of the squad since joining us in 2015 and he had an excellent season for us last year, finishing with more than 50 wickets in red-ball cricket.

“His pace adds variety and offers something different to our attack and he’s a very popular player within the group – having him around for 2019 is another real positive for us.”

The 36-year-old’s deal makes him available for the entire County Championship season at Hampshire, who begin their season at the Ageas Bowl against Essex on April 5.
