Adam Rossington, a wicketkeeper-batsman, was one of the few bright spots for Northamptonshire in 2014 as they were relegated by 91 points, losing 12 of their 16 Championship matches, eight by an innings. In such an unremittingly bleak season, Rossington's 465 runs at 31.00 were about as good as it got at Wantage Road - he also carried threat in limited-overs cricket - and his loan from Middlesex became a permanent deal at the end of the season.
Rossington's opportunities had been limited at Middlesex by the presence of John Simposn, but even so the departure of a player who had come through the Middlesex youth system, and who was described on his departure by director of cricket Angus Fraser as "an extremely talented young cricketer" was something of a surprise.
A product of both Middlesex's youth teams and the expensive Mill Hill school in North London, Rossington hit 161 in his first Second XI innings for Middlesex, against Northamptonshire in 2009. A first-class debut followed the next season and he was part of England's Under-19s that summer against Sri Lanka when a destructive hundred in the first Test made an impression. His maiden first-class hundred - an unbeaten 57-ball ton against Cambridge MCCU - included a string of five consecutive sixes.
