Nash lengthens Sussex stay
Sussex vice-captain Chris Nash has put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the PROBIZ County Ground until the conclusion of the 2016 season.
Nash, who has amassed over 10,000 runs for the county, was chosen as deputy to new skipper Ed Joyce at the conclusion of last season.
That campaign was an impressive one for the batsman, who struck 984 runs in the LV= County Championship, 240 in the Clydesdale Bank 40 and 319 in the Friends Life t20.
He said of his contract extension: “I am delighted to have signed for the next four years at the club which I have been at since I was nine.
“Our success over the past decade has been great to be part of and I look forward to continuing that with what is shaping up to be a very strong squad for 2013.
“Personally, I want to continue my good form across all competitions again next season and continue to push for higher honours.”
Mark Robinson, Sussex's professional cricket manager, added: “It is good news for the club to know that Chris will be here for a minimum of the next four years, as we embark on an important time for the club.
“It is not only Chris’ proven abilities with the bat and ball that we will be relying on, but also his ability to support and lead the team in his role as vice-captain.”
