Sam Northeast

Batsman

Sam Northeast is a right-hand batsman.

He was born in Ashford, Kent and has represented Hampshire in all formats since joining the Club in the winter of 2018.

The top-order batsman started his professional career at Kent County Cricket Club, making his First XI debut in 2007 before going on to appear in 136 First-Class matches and accumulating more than 8,000 runs for his home county.

Having impressing the Kent coaches with his leadership and success on and off the pitch, Northeast was awarded the Kent Club captaincy from 2015 and the top-order batsman proved himself an excellent performer across all formats, totalling 4,500 runs in both List A and T20 formats in 12 seasons.

His hard-work and success earned him a spot in the South team for the 2016-17 and 2018 North v South series, before earning a call-up to the England Lions squad for their series in the Caribbean.

The right-hander sealed a move to Hampshire ahead of the 2018 season, making his Hampshire debut against Worcestershire before establishing his place in the top-order.

A finger fracture prevented him from featuring throughout May and June, however Northeast returned to feature in Hampshire's final two matches of their triumphant 2018 Royal London One-Day Cup campaign, striking two half-centuries in as many games - including a superb 75* against his former side in the Lord's final - to contribute to the Club's first limited-overs trophy in six years. A solid T20 campaign also rounded out a positive first season at The Ageas Bowl.

Northeast proved to be crucial to Hampshire’s successes in his second season, totalling 1,123 First-Class runs in 2019 - 969 of which came in the County Championship – whilst also standing in as captain for significant periods during James Vince’s international commitments that summer.

The additional responsibility came natural to him, as it did at Kent, with Northeast taking the captaincy for Hampshire’s second successive List A final in 2019, a competition in which he totalled 280 runs at an average of 40. His contributions in the summer’s T20 competition were also valuable, with a tally of 243 runs in 13 T20 fixtures, almost helping Hampshire reach an eighth finals day.

His success in 2019 earned him a deserved England Lions call-up. Indeed, his 2019 red-ball run tally – which included four centuries and five fifties – was second only to Warwickshire’s Dom Sibley, who received his first England Test call-up.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a truncated 2020 domestic season, Northeast’s captaincy proved to be important again as he led Hampshire throughout a positive Bob Willis Trophy competition, whilst also notching two half-centuries in the five fixtures.
