New deals for Jennings, Harrison and Thorp
Batsman Keaton Jennings plus bowlers Jamie Harrison and Callum Thorp have signed new contracts with Durham.
Former South Africa Under-19 captain Jennings has a earned a two-year deal while the seamers have extended their stays by 12 months.
Jennings, 20, and Harrison, 21, made their first-team debuts this season when the former was Durham’s second XI player of the year in part for scoring two double-hundreds. Jennings hit 168 LV= County Championship runs at an average of 21.
An academy graduate like Jennings, Harrison made the most of the early-season conditions to earn 10 wickets at 26 with his left-arm pace but was held back by injury towards the end of the campaign.
Thorp, 37, who took 7-44 in Durham’s title-winning game at Kent in 2008, claimed 38 championship wickets at 20.76 this year.
