Batsman Adam London has signed a new two-year contract with Middlesex which will keep him at Lord's until the end of the 2011 season.

London made his first-class and One-Day debuts for Middlesex in the 2009 season, scoring two half-centuries after graduating from the club's youth setup.

Middlesex Managing Director of Cricket Angus Fraser told the club's official website (www.middlesexccc.com) that he was delighted London had signed.

"Adam is a committed, capable and exciting young cricketer, as he showed at the end of last season when he scored a couple of half centuries for the first eleven," he said.

"In each innings he showed character, firstly on debut against a strong Gloucestershire seam attack at Lord's, and then when he made a match saving 65 against Derbyshire at Uxbridge with a broken finger. On both occasions he showed that he is made of the right stuff.

"Adam has a bright future and it is good to know that he is spending it at Middlesex."

London has played four first-class matches and although he has played two One-Day games, he has yet to get a chance to bat in limited overs cricket.
