DORSET and Hampshire all-rounder Felix Organ has signed a new contract with the Hawks, keeping him at The Ageas Bowl until at least the end of 2024.

Organ has coupled his Hampshire duties with regular Dorset appearances in recent seasons.

In 2022, as his career with Hampshire accelerated, the Sydney-born 23-year-old played six Dorset games across all three formats.

Dorset used Organ most in T20s, where he scored 115 runs in four matches and took a combined 7-88 in 15 overs.

In his only three-day game for Dorset last year, Organ scored 76 runs and took 7-202 in 69.2 overs.

Former Canford School pupil Organ made one appearance for Dorset in the 50-over format, taking 2-49 and falling one short of a half-century with the bat.

After making his Hampshire debut aged 18, the former Hampshire Academy captain has made 55 appearances for the senior side across all formats and has become a valuable member of the senior squad, especially in the red-ball and one-day competitions.

Having started the 2022 season batting at seven in the County Championship, Organ was pushed to the top of the order, where he excelled.

Producing 726 runs at an average of 31.57 with two centuries – including a career best of 118 against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham – his impressive performances were backed up by 10 wickets as he played in all 14 games for Hampshire.

He then showed his leadership skills as one of the more experienced members of a youthful Royal London Cup side.

His 140 runs and five wickets helped the side progress all the way to the semi-final, before narrowly losing out to Kent Spitfires – despite Organ recording a half-century.

Speaking to Hampshire’s media team, Organ said: “Playing for Hampshire has been my whole life, so to be able to extend this journey means so much to me.

“From my development through the world-class academy to being in the first-team setup now, I have been privileged to be a part of a club that cares about its players across all age-groups.

“After an encouraging and successful season last year, we are now working towards growing and developing even further to secure even more success for this great club.

“Hopefully we can win some more trophies in that time and I can be a part of that.”

Giles White, Hampshire director of cricket, said: “Felix is a versatile cricketer and infectious character who adds in equal measure both on and off the pitch.

“It’s been great to see his development through the academy and into the senior side and we are delighted that he will remain at The Ageas Bowl for some time to come.

“His game continues to develop, and we look forward to seeing him build on an encouraging 2022.”
