Derby Pace Duo Sign New Contracts
Both fast-bowlers have enjoyed their best-ever seasons in 2007 – passing 50 wickets for the first time in their careers and leading the Derbyshire bowling attack with distinction.
Wagg, 24, signed for Derbyshire in 2006 and - although he missed the first half of the season with a shoulder injury – he impressed sufficiently to gain a new two-year contract.
That deal had another year still to run but after taking 51 wickets this time around – as well as contributing 431 handy runs with the bat – the club offered him a longer and improved contract.
Lungley, 28, is currently in his seventh season with Derbyshire and – after struggling with a catalogue of injuries prior to the current campaign – he has burst back onto the scene with 53 wickets at an average of just 24.50.
Two premier fast-bowlers committing their future to the club is a massive boost for Derbyshire’s recently appointed new Head of Cricket John Morris.
Morris said: “Obviously I am delighted that both players have committed their futures to Derbyshire County Cricket Club - not just from the point of view that they have done extremely well this year – but also from the fact that they are two English cricketers that have the potential to go much further in the game.”
