Wicketkeeper-batter, Brooke Guest, has signed a two-year contract extension with Derbyshire, keeping him at The Incora County Ground until the end of the 2025 season.

Guest, 25, was ever-present for Derbyshire during the 2022 season, scoring more than 1,000 runs across all formats, as well as claiming 72 dismissals.

His four LV= County Championship centuries in 2022 is a tally bettered by only Keaton Jennings, Chateshwar Pujara and Tom Abell (5).

Since making his debut for Derbyshire in 2020, Guest has scored 2,177 runs, including five centuries and seven half-centuries, while his impact behind the stumps has been equally impressive, with 115 catches and nine stumpings to his name.

Head of Cricket, Mickey Arthur, said: “Brooke is a key member of our squad and it’s brilliant to have him with us until at least 2025.

“His development over the last year has been impressive, both with the bat and the gloves. Brooke is one of the first to training and the last to leave, that’s the kind of dedication we need as we target silverware for Derbyshire.”

Guest added: “In the last year, I feel like I’ve taken my game to another level and I want to keep that progression going with Derbyshire.

“As a squad, we’ve improved a lot already under our world-class coaching setup and the ambition is to target trophies. As a player, that’s what you always want to be doing and we’re all pulling in the same direction, to bring success to our supporters.”
