Leicestershire have signed Robbie Williams from Middlesex on a one-year deal. Williams, a right-arm seamer, had been on trial with the club in the closing weeks of the 2012 season and appeared in the Second XI Championship final defeat by Kent.

Williams, a product of Durham MCCU, is relatively inexperienced for a 25-year-old. He has played only nine first-class matches and none since 2009, taking 23 first-class wickets at 32.82, with a best of 5 for 70. On Middlesex debut, Williams opened the bowling with England seamer Steven Finn and picked up 5 for 115 against Essex.

Leicestershire chief executive, Mike Siddall, said: "Robbie impressed whilst playing for the second XI. He adds to the selection opportunities within the seam bowlers and we hope that he will make his mark at Grace Road."
