All-rounder Dominic Cork has signed a one-year extension to his Hampshire club that will see him remain with the Friends Provident t20 champions until the end of the 2011 season.

Cork, 39, led the side to victory over Somerset in a gripping final at The Rose Bowl and was Hampshire's leading wicket-taker in all competitions in 2010, with 73 overall.

The 2011 season will be Cork's third at the club and 21st as a professional cricketer.

“After such a fantastic season it was just a matter of time before I committed myself to another year at The Rose Bowl," Cork said.

“I was immensely proud to win the t20 cup and to captain the team generally for the second half of last season. Thankfully, I still feel able to do a job for Hampshire and so I’m delighted to be coming back and I look forward to hopefully winning a few more trophies next year.”

Hampshire manager, Giles White added; “Dominic had an exceptional season and was a huge part of the team’s success in 2010. I am delighted that he signed for another year.”
