Durham Cricket are delighted to announce that Scott Steel has signed a new one-year deal with the club, while Nathan Rimmington has agreed to a new T20 contract to remain at Emirates Riverside in 2020.

Scott Steel, 20, has made a name for himself in the white ball formats in 2019, opening the batting in both the Royal London One Day Cup and the Vitality Blast. He amassed 596 runs in the two formats with two half centuries in each competition.

In addition, Steel added valuable overs of off-spin – particularly in the Blast – taking 5 wickets at an average of 19.80 and a low economy rate. He also earned himself a first-class cap in September when he made his Specsavers County Championship debut against Middlesex at Lord's.

Meanwhile, Rimmington, 36, has re-signed for the club on a T20 deal. A star with the ball in the Blast in 2019, he took 16 wickets at an average of 19.06 – his form earning him opportunities to play for the Karnataka Tuskers in the Abu Dhabi T10, and the Northern Superchargers in The Hundred next summer.
