London stays in the capital
Young batsman Adam London has signed a new two-year contract with Middlesex, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2011 season.
Having spent two summers in the second XI, the 21-year-old made 68 on his first-class debut against Gloucestershire in August and defied a broken finger to compile another half-century against Derbyshire in the final LV= County Championship game of the season.
He played in the final four championship matches, as well as two NatWest Pro40 encounters, and made enough of an impression to earn a longer deal.
Managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said: “Adam is a committed, capable and exciting young cricketer, as he showed at the end of last season when he scored a couple of half-centuries for the first XI.
“In each innings he showed character, firstly on debut against a strong Gloucestershire seam attack at Lord’s, and then when he made a match-saving 65 against Derbyshire at Uxbridge with a broken finger.
“On both occasions he showed that he is made of the right stuff. Adam has a bright future and it is good to know that he is spending it at Middlesex.”
