Dan Housego Bio

Daniel Mark Housego is a talented and classical right-handed opening batsman hailing from England. Born on December 23, 1988, in England, Housego embarked on his cricket journey with Middlesex before moving to Gloucestershire in 2012 in search of revitalizing his career. However, he encountered three seasons of moderate returns with limited opportunities, leading to his release from Gloucestershire at the end of the 2014 season.

Housego’s path to professional cricket started during his schooling at the Oratory School in Reading. He displayed exceptional talent and represented England at the U-15, U-16, and U-17 levels. In 2006, he debuted in the Minor Counties Championship for Berkshire, leaving a remarkable impact by scoring an unbeaten 170 against Shropshire. His outstanding performances extended to Middlesex’s second XI, where he won the prestigious Youth Player of the Year Award in 2005.

Beyond cricket, Housego was an all-round athlete who excelled in various sports. He showcased his speed and agility as the U-12 national champion in the 200m event. Furthermore, Housego also displayed his prowess in youth-team football for Oxford United.

Housego’s first-class debut arrived in 2008 when he represented Middlesex against Derby. Despite scoring 23 and 36 in the match, he struggled to establish a permanent place in the first team. Over the next three seasons, Housego participated in seven matches, managing to score only one century. In 2011, he received another opportunity and played impressively in eight matches, accumulating 407 runs at an average of 31.30 before being dropped. However, Housego swiftly regained his form in second XI cricket, finishing as the top run-scorer in the country with 883 runs at a staggering average of 110.37, including four centuries in seven matches.

Housego’s outstanding performances in second XI cricket caught the attention of Gloucestershire, who offered him a three-year contract for the 2012 season. This provided Housego with renewed hope and a chance to return to the club where he initially began his cricketing journey. His first game for Gloucestershire saw him smash an impressive 150 runs against Essex, setting high expectations for the season. Despite this promising start, Housego struggled to maintain consistency, managing to score only an additional 293 runs in 13 innings before being dropped in July. His opportunities in the 2014 season were minimal, with just one match to his name, where he scored 0 and 27 before being released from the team.

While Housego’s career in professional cricket may not have reached the heights he aspired to, his journey is a testament to his undeniable talent and determination. His achievements at junior levels and remarkable performances in second XI cricket showcase his potential and dedication to the sport. As Housego continues to pursue his cricketing dreams, he remains an inspiration to aspiring cricketers, demonstrating that setbacks are merely stepping stones towards future success.
