James Fuller joins Gloucestershire

2:57 pm on 27 August 2010

The English county cricket club Gloucestershire have signed the young New Zealand bowler James Fuller on a three-year contact.

The 20-year-old Fuller plays for Otago but was born in South Africa and holds a British passport which means he doesn't qualify as an overseas player.

He has also been part of the New Zealand Under-19 team and joined a full training squad in 2010.

John Bracewell, the former New Zealand player and coach, is currently in charge at Gloucestershire and links between the two are strong.

James Franklin and Hamish Marshall are part of the current Gloucestershire side.
