MIDDLESEX have recruited a pair of all-rounders to bolster their squad for the lucrative Stanford Super Series in Antigua later this month.

Neil Dexter has been signed from Kent on a two-year contract to join the 15-man squad that travels to Antigua on October 19.

The 24-year-old, who made a top score of 71 in three championship matches during a loan spell with Essex this season, is considered an important signing by the Lord's outfit.

"We believe he is a major addition to our talented young squad," said Middlesex chief executive Vinny Codrington.
