Ryan Stevenson is a right-arm bowler and right-hand batsman.
He was born in Torquay, Devon and has represented Hampshire in all formats since making his debut in 2015.
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 in Hampshire’s Second XI.
Initially signing a deal until the end of the 2015 season, the seamer made his First XI debut against Durham in the Championship before going on to feature in Hampshire’s last two matches of the 2015 campaign a avoided relegation from Division One.
With a new deal in place, he continued to progress in 2016, making his List-A debut against Essex Eagles, 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 tremendously in 2018, remaining fit for the season as he put in excellent performances in 10 T20 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, recording a four-wicket haul and maiden First-Class fifty against Surrey.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a truncated 2020 domestic season, Stevenson made valuable contributions in the inaugural Bob Willis Trophy, including a career-best 4-70 against Middlesex. He also featured in all but one of Hampshire’s Vitality Blast fixtures last summer.
