Worcestershire have awarded two-year professional contracts which will run from 2011 to 2012 to 19-year-old Academy graduates Neil Pinner and Matt Pardoe.
Both have shown strong form the second eleven in 2010 and have passed 1000 runs.
Steve Rhodes, Director of Cricket at Worcestershire said: "The conveyor belt of young players coming through the Academy and our relationship with Malvern College continues to bear fruit and I am delighted that both Neil and Matt have secured full time contracts having been granted a summer scholarship this year.
"We cannot find any record in recent years of two players passing 1000 runs in 2nd XI cricket and they have thoroughly earned these full time contracts. I have no doubt it will not be long before they get a chance in the 1st XI."
