Howell agrees new deal

Benny Howell has put pen to paper on a contract extension at Gloucestershire until the end of 2015.

The batting all-rounder was a regular fixture for the county this season, appearing across all formats in a total of 38 matches.

The 25-year-old said: “I’m pleased to have signed an extension to my contract. It looks to be a promising two years ahead.

“With Michael Klinger back captaining again next season, we have a strong squad in all forms of the game and I look forward to helping to bring some trophies to the club.”

Chief executive Will Brown added: "We’re delighted to agree an extension to Benny’s contract.

“He’s an entertaining, committed and integral member of the team both on and off the field and his development and on-going success is key to the team's future performances.”
