Derbyshire all-rounder Garry Park has signed a new one-year contract which will see him take over the role of second-team captain in 2012.

He will also continue to compete for opportunities in first-team cricket having featured regularly in Twenty20 and 40-over cricket since his move from Durham in 2009.

"Our young Second XI will benefit immensely from Garry’s attitude and experience," head coach Karl Krikken said.

"He has played lots of cricket at Second XI level and also knows what it takes to successfully make the step up into the first-class arena. This makes him the ideal candidate for the job."

Park added: "I'm delighted to be staying with Derbyshire and look forward to training hard over the winter to put myself in the best position to fight my way back into the first team in all forms of the game.

"I feel the club has made positive strides and it's exciting to still be part of that."
