Sussex’s all-time leading T20 wicket-taker Will Beer has signed a new contract.

The deal continues an association with Sussex that stretches back to the 1998 season when the leg-spinner captained the county’s under-10 side.

The 2019 season will be the 30-year-old’s 12th as a first team player.

Beer has made 174 appearances for Sussex across all three-formats since his debut in 2008.

Since then he has taken 183 wickets and scored 1,016 runs for the side.

He was a key member of the Sussex Sharks team that won the 2009 Twenty20 Cup and in this year’s tournament became the county’s highest wicket-taker in the format, finishing the campaign with 84 dismissals to his name.

Beer said: “I am really thrilled and excited to be signing a new contract for the club.

“I have never been as excited to be a Sussex player as I am now and this is testament to the environment that has been created over the past year."
