Rossington extends Middlesex stay

Middlesex have announced that promising wicketkeeper-batsman Adam Rossington has signed a new two-year deal with the county.

The 20-year-old, who scored his maiden first-class hundred against Cambridge University in April, has committed his future at Lord’s until the end of the 2015 campaign.

Adam Rossington shone with the bat in Middlesex's Friends Life t20 campaign this season and will be looking to further his reputation after signing a new two-year deal with the county.

Rossington scored 321 runs in limited-overs cricket during the past season - 139 in six Yorkshire Bank 40 outings and 182 in 10 Friends Life t20 appearances - and took 24 dismissals behind the stumps.

Middlesex’s managing director Angus Fraser has challenged Rossington to continue his rise through the ranks at the county.

He said: “Adam is potentially one of the most exciting young cricketers in the country and we are delighted he has signed a new deal.

“He has an excellent cricket brain and enjoys being in the thick of a battle. As well as being able to compete, Adam has the talent to put his plans into action.

“Like a lot of young cricketers there are areas of his game he needs to work on, and these have been identified to him.

“In 2014 Adam has the opportunity to push for and claim a place in our first XI in all forms of the game."
