Anderson lengthens Lancs deal

James Anderson has committed his future to Lancashire by signing a one-year contract extension until the end of the 2015 season.

England’s premier seamer has represented the Red Rose since 2000, although his appearances have unsurprisingly been limited since his international debut in late 2002.

The 31-year-old has been centrally contracted by England for much of the last decade while remaining tied to his sole county.

Burnley-born Anderson, whose most recent game at Emirates Old Trafford was the third Investec Ashes Test in early August, said: “I am always proud to wear the Lancashire shirt and I am delighted to extend my stay.

"It was great to return to Emirates Old Trafford in the summer for the Investec Ashes Test match and use the great the facilities after the ground's redevelopment."

Lancashire cricket director Mike Watkinson added: "Jimmy has been an outstanding player and a great ambassador for the club.

“It is great to see him play for us when his international duties allow him to and we are pleased that he has signed a new deal for Lancashire."
