Sussex get more of Magoffin

Sussex’s most prolific bowler of the last two seasons, Australian Steve Magoffin, is to remain with the club for the next campaign.

Magoffin, the county’s leading LV= County Championship wicket-taker in 2012 and 2013, told at the end of this term that he hoped to continue playing for Sussex and has now signed a new one-year deal to continue as an overseas player.

The 33-year-old Queenslander, who lives in the UK with his wife and young son, took 57 championship scalps last year and 63 this, including a career-best 8-20 in Somerset’s two-day thrashing at Horsham in May.

Magoffin said: “I am delighted that Sussex have asked me to continue at the club for the 2014 season.

“The last two years have been very enjoyable and I hope to continue to perform well for Sussex this coming season.”

Sussex captain Ed Joyce added: “It's great news to have Mags around for at least another season. He's led our attack brilliantly in four-day cricket in the last couple of years and has been one of the best performers in county cricket over that period as well.

“He is certainly a man in demand so to get his signature for another season is a relief.”
