Maddy secures Warwickshire extension
Batting all-rounder Darren Maddy has signed a contract extension to remain with Warwickshire for the 2013 season.
The 38-year-old, who joined from Leicestershire in 2007, has gone on to establish himself as a key member of the Warwickshire squad in all formats.
Maddy said: “My desire to win cricket matches is as strong as it’s ever been and I’m thrilled to be able to extend my deal with Warwickshire for an extra year.
“We’ve got a great set-up here at Edgbaston with arguably the best coaching team and facilities in county cricket. The current playing squad is amongst the strongest that I’ve ever been part of and it’s certainly a very exciting time to be at Warwickshire.”
In a career spanning 19-years, Maddy has represented England in Test, one-day and T20 cricket. He helped Warwickshire to Clydesdale Bank 40 glory in 2010 and boasts a brace of LV= County Championship and Friends Life t20 titles from his time at Grace Road.
Ashley Giles, Warwickshire’s director of cricket, said: “Madds is a great role model to the rest of the squad. He’s won many trophies, keeps himself very fit, and is always keen to work on improving his game.
“It’s a great asset to have one of the most successful players in the modern era of county cricket in our squad, and we’re all delighted that he’s committed himself to Warwickshire until at least the end of next season.”
