Batsman will stay with County Champions until end of 2019 season

Essex opening batsman Nick Browne has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the County Champions until the conclusion of the 2019 season.

The 26-year-old is the latest homegrown talent to commit his future to Essex and has been rewarded after an impressive first season in Division One.

The left-hander finished as Essex’s top Championship run-scorer in 2017, scoring 952 runs at an average of 43.27, including a high score of 221.

The former Trinity Catholic High School student was delighted to commit his future to his home county and the South Woodford batsman commented: “After the season we have had, it was an easy decision to sign a contract extension.

“It was so special to celebrate the Championship at Chelmsford, I really got a sense of how much it meant to the members’ and fans. Winning the County Championship with your home county is something you dream of as a kid and it was an incredible season.

“We have the squad that can create an era of success that will go down in Essex history. Now it is time to work harder than ever before, to try and repeat this year’s heroics.”
