Ecb Logo Gutter Icon 135x160

Josh Mierkalns has been released by Nottinghamshire after the county chose not to renew his contract.

The 21-year-old, who played largely for the second XI, was on a short-term deal at Trent Bridge which ran out at the end of June.

Assistant manager Wayne Noon said: “Things haven’t worked out and Josh has not kicked on as we would have liked.

“He has not produced the performances we were looking for this summer, but goes with our best wishes for the future.”

Mierkalns, a middle-order batsman, spent two years with the Nottinghamshire Academy before joining the staff on a summer contract.

He made his debut for the second XI at the age of 16, with his senior bow for Notts coming last season.

Mierkalns made one first-class appearance against West Indies A as well as playing twice in the Twenty20 Cup and once in the NatWest Pro40.
