Carter And White Extend Nottinghamshire Contracts

Nottinghamshire bowlers Andy Carter and Graeme White have penned new contracts at Trent Bridge which will see them remain at the club until the end of the 2012 season.

The pair both held contracts which expired at the end of the 2011 season but the club has moved to secure them on longer deals.

Left-arm spinner White joined the club from Northamptonshire ahead of the 2010 season and Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell sees him developing into an all-rounder.

“Graeme has quickly become a key member of our team in limited overs matches,” he said

“He’s here principally for his spin bowling but he has shown promise with the bat and has the potential to become a good all-rounder.

“He’ll be keen to play four day cricket and to do that he needs to show that he can bat at eight or nine which he’s working hard to achieve.”

Carter spent some of 2010 on loan with Essex, where he took 13 Championship wickets and Newell believes he is ready to push for a first-team place with the County Champions in 2011.

"Andrew needed to gain first class experience and did very well during his spell with Essex,” Newell said.

“He has genuine pace and has developed accuracy to go with it which will help to push his case for a place in our side next season.”
