A bright prospect for the club, opening batsman Emilio Gay was awarded his first professional contract at the end of 2019 on the back of a run-heavy season in the Second XI and club cricket.

Gay was ultimately rewarded with a first-class debut in the final Championship fixture of the season, though weather intervened and Gay didn’t face a ball.

A former pupil at Bedford School, Emilio Gay been involved in the youth development set-up at Wantage Road since the Under-15s age-group and was named the Academy’s Player of the Year in 2018.

Some scintillating form during the 2019 season for the Second XI saw Gay rewarded with his first professional contract and he even received his first Northamptonshire cap, in a washed out County Championship match at the end of the 2019 season, away to Gloucestershire.

Gay’s prolific season has included a few massive individual performances including 186 not out for the Second XI and double hundred in the NCL Premier Division.
