New deal for McCarter
Gloucestershire have announced that Graeme McCarter has signed a new deal that keeps him at the county until the end of the 2014 season.
The 19-year-old seamer from Northern Ireland has extended his stay by two years after making an impressive start to his Gloucestershire career.
McCarter took three wickets on his debut at Lord's in a Clydesdale Bank 40 match against Middlesex before making his first LV=County Championship appearance against Yorkshire in May.
"I'm delighted with the new contract," Graeme said. "It takes a lot of the pressure off me as I work on all aspects of my game.
"I feel I have improved a lot after working with John Bracewell and Stuart Barnes this year. I'm looking to get more variation into my bowling and to become a better batsman.
"My target at the start of the season was just to be part of the first-team squad. My debut came quicker than I expected and I've been in the squad without playing a number of times since the three games I appeared in."
