Nottinghamshire Academy graduate Fateh Singh has signed a new two-year contract, taking his association with the club beyond a decade.
The spin-bowling all-rounder - who joined Notts’ County Age Groups as a nine-year-old - made his first-team debut for the club in 2021.
In the same year, he was selected for England Young Lions, going on to represent his country at the ICC Men’s Under 19 World Cup.
He has since made 12 first-team appearances for the Outlaws in the One Day Cup, and has now upgraded his contract from rookie to professional terms.
“This contract gives me the backing to kick on at Nottinghamshire, which is something I am really keen to do,” Singh said.
“I’ve grown as a player and a person over the past two seasons having dedicated myself to the game, and I know opportunities will present themselves if I continue to work hard and develop technically.
“We’ve got a strong group of spinners, but that only helps to drive standards higher, which will help me to get better. I’m really pleased to carry on working with the coaches here who have helped me become the player I am today.
“Ultimately, I’ve got an ambition to compete in every format for the club I’ve grown up representing, and I hope I can get closer to doing that over the course of the next two years.”
The 19-year-old all-rounder has taken nine wickets in his List A appearances, in addition to a top score of 45 off 22 deliveries against Middlesex.
In the Second XI Championship in 2023, he averaged a touch under 36 with the bat across six games.
Singh is plying his trade in Grade cricket in Melbourne this winter, whilst also training with Victoria.
“Fateh is someone who has a great belief in his ability and that’s a really valuable asset to go along with his natural talent,” Head Coach, Peter Moores, said.
“He has a fearlessness about the way he approaches the game and he is happy to take anyone on.
“The key for him now is now to knuckle down and focus at an important time in his career so that he can learn and improve as much as possible.
“He’s got a high ceiling. With hard work he can and will reach that potential, and that’s an exciting prospect for him and us.”
