Sussex wicket-keeper-batsman Ben Brown has signed a two-year extension to his contract which will keep him at Sussex until the end of the 2012 season.
Brown, 22, scored his maiden first-class century against Derbyshire at Horsham in a breakthrough season in 2010, having made his first-class debut as long ago as 2007 against Sri Lanka A and a one-day debut in the same season against Nottinghamshire.
“I’m delighted to have been offered a new deal and to sign the contract, as I’m really looking to press on in the first team next season," Brown said.
“There’s obviously no guaranteed selections but I’m looking forward to hopefully playing in Division One, building on what I’ve learnt and sealing a regular place.
“I’ll be staying here to work hard in the gym over the Winter and maybe I’ll be able to get some cricket abroad after Christmas to really prepare for the new season."
Captain Michael Yardy added: “It’s great news that Ben has agreed to sign a new contract with the club.
“He has produced some excellent performances this season and is a very important player in our squad on and off the pitch."
