A former pupil at Bedford School, Emilio Gay been involved in the youth development set-up at Wantage Road since Under-15s and was named the Academy’s Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019.
Some scintillating form during the 2019 season for the Second XI saw Gay rewarded with his first professional contract and a first Northamptonshire cap, in a washed out County Championship match at the end of the 2019 season. Gay’s prolific season in 2019 included a few massive individual performances including 186 not out for the Second XI and double hundred in the NCL Premier Division.
Gay continued to impress during the Bob Willis Trophy in 2020 – hitting his maiden first class half century in the win over Glamorgan and going one better in 2021 saw Gay raise a first class century in a productive season
After continuing his good form in 2021 and being rewarded with a renewed contract, Emilio gay is one to watch for Northamptonshire in 2022.
