Worcestershire have signed Essex seamer Ben Allison on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 23-year-old seamer has taken 42 wickets across all formats in his short career to date.
Worcestershire Head Coach Alan Richardson said: “We’re delighted to have Ben join us for the rest of the season. He’s a talented young bowler who has already shown his potential at Essex.
“He’s a good fit for our bowling attack, and I’m sure he’ll be a valuable asset to the team.x§
“Ben is a tall, right-arm bowler who bowls with pace and seam. He’s also a good fielder and has a great attitude, and someone we believe can make a real impact as we look to achieve promotion.”
Allison is available for selection for Worcestershire’s next LV=Insurance County Championship fixture against Glamorgan at New Road starting Sunday, 3 September.
