Notts Sign Haynes

“When I sat down with Pete Moores and Ant Botha, they were both passionate about the direction of this squad, and how I can fit into it.

“I’m under no illusion that it’ll take hard work to nail down a place in the side and continue to grow in all formats, but Notts have a track record of taking on players and improving them to help them reach their potential.”

Notts recently signed New Zealand international Will Young on a short term deal and also announced Haynes fellow Worcestershire team-mates, Josh Tongue and Dillon Pennington would be arriving next season, Tongue a fast powerful bowler who’s an England international whilst Pennington is a tall rangy quick paced seamer, both will add pace to the Trent Bridge side.
