Roy and Dunn deals
Two of Surrey’s brightest prospects, Jason Roy and Matthew Dunn, have signed two-year contracts with the county.
Both made their first-class debuts on Surrey duty this year and are graduates of the club’s academy.
Roy, 20, became the first Surrey player to register a Twenty20 hundred, blasting 101 from 57 balls against Kent at Beckenham. He also impressed on his first-class debut, scoring 76 from 65 deliveries against Leicestershire at Grace Road.
Dunn, 18, a fast bowler already capable of delivering the ball at over 90mph, played in the Under-19 World Cup in January. He made his Surrey first-team debut against the Bangladeshis in May, taking 3-48 in the Tigers’ only innings.
Surrey professional cricket manager Chris Adams said: “I’m delighted that we have signed two of Surrey’s foremost emerging talents and two players who I am certain have the ability to go all the way.
“In Jason, we have one of the most destructive county batsmen playing today and in Matt an emerging fast bowler with the ability to bowl 90mph and over.”
Roy told Surrey TV: “Having been involved with Surrey for many years, this is a dream come true for me.
“Getting some real first-team experience last year was very exciting but I need to start scoring more consistently.
“Now I have the next two years to look forward to I am confident I can do that and really show the fans what it means to me to play for this club.”
Dunn, who signed an emerging player contract in March, added: “This contract is what I’ve been working for since I started playing for Surrey in the U15s.
“I am really looking forward to buckling down and trying to establish myself in the Surrey side in all forms of the game.”
