Profile

John Simpson played first-team Lancashire league cricket for Haslingden when only ten years old and went on to represent Lancashire in every age group from Under-11 upwards. Yet, despite appearing for Lancashire seconds and earning his first England Under-19s call-up for the 2005 tour of Bangladesh, it took a move to Middlesex to realise his ambition of becoming a professional cricketer. Initially given a short contract at Lord's, the left-handed batsman-keeper really came into his own during the 2011 season when 869 runs at 43.45 and 65 victims behind the stumps played a big part in the county's promotion campaign. Division One runs proved harder to come by but Simpson's keeping almost always impressed and in 2014 he had the satisfaction of hitting two Championship hundreds to cement his place in the side.
