Prior commits future to Sussex by signing new contract
England star Matt Prior has committed his future to Sussex after signing a new two-year contract.
The deal will keep the wicketkeeper – whose old contract ran out during the winter - at Hove until at least the end of the 2015 season.
The 32-year-old said: “I'm absolutely delighted to sign another contract for Sussex. It is an honour to continue to be part of the club where I have spent my professional career and Hove is a very special place to me.
“I am very much looking forward to helping Sussex compete for trophies again this season and I hope to be a part of future success, something I know that everyone connected with the club works very hard for.”
Prior made his first class debut for Sussex back in 2001 after coming through the county’s academy.
He has scored more than 7,500 first runs for Sussex, including 18 centuries, in 144 matches as well as playing 75 Tests for England.
Sussex coach Mark Robinson said: “We’re really delighted to have Matt confirmed for the next two summers. He not only brings an incredible playing talent but a lot of experience with him every time he wears the Sussex Martlets.”
