Ryan Stevenson is a right-arm fast-medium bowler and right-hand batsman.
After catching the eye of Hampshire's Director of Cricket, Giles White, at a minor counties match for Devon at Finchampstead, Stevenson was offered a trial at the Ageas Bowl mid-way through the 2015 season and the right-armer immediately impressed the coaching staff, finishing with figures of 4-20 in his third Second XI match for Hampshire.
Initially signing a deal until the end of the 2015 season, Ryan made his first-team debut against Durham in the Championship before going on to feature in Hampshire’s last two matches of the 2015 campaign as the club avoided relegation from Division One.
The paceman signed a new two-year deal that September and continued to progress in 2016, making his List-A debut against Essex Eagles in the Royal London One Day Cup where it took just four balls to claim his first wicket in the format.
A long-term back injury limited Stevenson's involvement throughout the 2017 campaign and he featured just once that season, but the seamer bounced back excellently in 2018, remaining fit for the season as he put in excellent performances in 10 Vitality Blast fixtures and throughout the summer for the Hampshire Second XI.
Ryan enjoyed another positive 2019 campaign as part of the Second XI where he led the bowling attack in all formats and made vital contributions to the side's Second XI Championship title, including a five-wicket haul in the competition final. He also made appearances in the Vitality Blast and County Championship this year, recording a career-best and maiden first-class fifty against Surrey in August.
