Alistair Brown Signs Contract Extension At Surrey

Hard-hitting batsman Alistair Brown has signed a one-year extension to his current contract at Surrey, tying him to the Brit Oval until the end of 2008.

Brown, now 37, joined Surrey in 1990 and has been a fixture in the side since debuting in 1992 and went on to make 16 one-day international appearances for England.

He holds the record individual innings for a List A game, with 268 he scored in 2002 against Glamorgan while he shared a Surrey record opening stand of 294 with James Benning as Surrey scored 496 for four against Gloucestershire early in the 2007 season.

He has also scored 1,000 Championship runs on eight occasions and averages well over 40 in first-class cricket.

Surrey cricket manager Alan Butcher said: “Ali has been very keen to express his determination to regain his place in our middle order. This will make for stiff competition and keep all contenders on their toes.”
