Brown prolongs Sussex stay
Ben Brown has signed a one-year contract extension at Sussex.
The 23-year-old, who signed a two-year deal with the club in 2010, will now continue to ply his trade at the PROBIZ County Ground until the end of the 2013 campaign.
The wicketkeeper-batsman featured heavily in all forms of the game last season and follows opening batsman Chris Nash, seamer Naveed Arif Gondal and fellow wicketkeeper and England international Matt Prior in extending his stay at the club.
Brown, who has four first-class centuries to his name, said: “I’m really pleased to have signed an extension for another year with Sussex.
“This is where I have grown up playing my cricket and I want to continue here in the future. Hopefully I can now look to cement my place in the first team from now on.”
Captain Michael Yardy added: “Ben has continued to establish himself as a first-team player and we’re delighted he has agreed to a one-year extension on his contract.
“This will give him further time to develop his game and work hard to produce excellent performances in seasons to come.”
