Sam Northeast

An all-round sportsman, Sam Northeast was a national schools rackets champion, a county squash player and cross-country runner, and good enough at football and rugby to have been offered county trials.

• In 2005 he made his Kent second XI debut against Durham and scored 96
• In 2006 he was included in a strong Getty XI against the touring Sri Lankans
• He enjoyed an excellent tri-series in Sri Lanka in 2007
• Part of England's Under-19 World Cup squad in 2008
• Travelled with the Under-19 squad to South Africa in January 2009

Sam Northeast has been marked out as a cricketer with leadership potential from an early age, and Kent put their faith in him by naming him as their captain in all competitions for 2016 in succession to Rob Key, a long-serving captain and mentor. His appointment had always seemed a matter of time – his name was being murmured around the county while he was still a schoolboy – but he did much to cement that reputation as he led an exciting Kent limited-overs side in 2015 which, although finishing trophy less, won many plaudits.

Sam joined Hampshire in February 2018 and was crucial in their One Day Cup victory later that year.
