Sussex Cricket is delighted to announce that Tom Clark has signed a contract extension with the Club.

Born in Haywards Heath, Clark made his Sussex debut in 2019 and has gone on to establish himself as key batter at the top of the Sussex order.

Tom made his maiden century in April against Nottinghamshire at The 1st Central County Ground and quickly followed it up with another against Leicestershire at Grace Road in May 2022.

Speaking on his new deal, Clark, said: “I’m delighted to have signed a contract extension with my home club and I feel proud to be part of what should be a very exciting few years to come.

“Hopefully as a team we can bring success and silverware back to Hove in the near future and there is a sense of excitement and expectation to do so.”

Tom has gone on to make 25 first-class appearances and 12 in List-A games for Sussex.

As well as a brace of centuries in the County Championship last season, Tom picked up his maiden List-A century against Surrey at The 1st Central County Ground in August, making 104 from 106 deliveries.

That knock helped the Sussex Sharks to a record-breaking total of 378 runs from their 50-overs, the highest total of any Sussex team in List-A cricket at The 1st Central County Ground.

Director of Pathways and Partnerships, Keith Greenfield, added: “It’s great that Tom has signed an extension with the Club.

“Tom is another example of a promising young player that has emerged from the pathway and broken into the first team.

“He had a great season last year and we expect more to come from him in 2023.”
