Sussex bowlers Corey Collymore and Chris Liddle have been awarded one-year extensions to their current contracts which will keep both men at Hove until the end of the 2010 season.
25-year-old Liddle has not played a competitive game of cricket in 2009 due to an injured ankle while Collymore has impressed, taking 31 wickets in first-class cricket this season.
“It’s great to be returning to Sussex for the 2010 season," Collymore said. "I enjoy playing my cricket at Hove and 2009 has been a remarkable year for the club. I look forward to helping this club make a big impact on world cricket.”
Liddle added: “It’s been a frustrating year, but I’m incredibly excited about getting fit and playing a full part in a successful Sussex team.”
On Collymore, captain Mike Yardy commented: “Corey is a dream to captain and he’s fantastic to have around the dressing room. He’s a quality seam bowler and his experience and input always proves priceless.”
He added the following on Liddle: “It was a shame for both him and the club that he was out all year due to injury, but he’s got a chance in 2010 to show everybody what they’ve been missing.”
