Surrey all-rounder Chris Jordan has signed a two-year extension to his current deal at Surrey which will keep him at the Brit Oval until the end of the 2011 season.
20-year-old Jordan has impressed since coming over to England as a 15-year-old, and although he was born in Barbados, he holds a British passport.
Jordan has taken 32 wickets in 13 first-class matches for Surrey and 22 wickets in One Day cricket since making his Surrey debut in 2007.
He told Surrey's website (www.surreycricket.com): “Surrey has been a great home for me over the last two years and I am hugely looking forward to the future development of our squad.
“2008 was a frustrating time for me but has only given me greater motivation to bowl fast, take wickets and score runs at the highest possible level. There are a large number of great young players at Surrey and I hope to be a part of a successful new generation.”
Chris Adams, Professional Cricket Manager at Surrey, added: “It’s not every day you get a young player with the ability of Chris Jordan, so getting him to commit his future to Surrey was very important to us.
“As well as possessing the ultimate set of abilities for any fast bowler – pace, power, aggression and consistency – his excellent ball striking gives added depth to our batting order. I am hugely excited to work with Chris over the coming years to help him realise his massive potential and become a genuine star of the game.”
