Sussex tie down Wernars
Kirk Wernars will stay with Sussex until the end of the 2014 season after signing a one-year contract extension at the PROBIZ County Ground.
The 21-year-old all-rounder made just seven first-team appearances in 2012, but scored heavily when captaining the club’s second XI.
“I am extremely happy to be signing an extension with Sussex,” said Wernars.
“Since joining the club in 2011 I feel my game has come a very long way, and I have grown as a cricketer.
“For the 2013 season I am hoping to be a good asset for the team both on and off the cricket field.”
Mark Robinson, Sussex’s professional cricket manager, believes there is much more to come from Wernars.
He added: “Kirk made good strides last season, especially with his bowling, and at his age he has a lot of promise to be a genuine all-rounder in all formats of the game.”
