Sussex Trio Jamie Atkins, Jack Carson and Henry Crocombe have all signed their first rookie contracts.

The teenage trio are all graduates of the Sussex Cricket Pathway, with Carson and Crocombe making their first-class debuts this summer, and have all signed two-year rookie deals.

Carson was Sussex's leading wicket taker in the Bob Willis Trophy with 15 dismissals.

Crocombe made his first appearance for the senior side in the win against Hampshire at the start of August.

He missed one Bob Willis Trophy match, taking three wickets in total.

Crocombe was called up by England Young Lions for a ‘North vs. South’ match at Loughborough last month.

18-year-old Atkins was also included in that Young Lions squad, and was clocked at 88mph during a spell which saw him take an impressive five-fer against the ‘North’.

Atkins is yet to make his senior debut for Sussex.

Sussex's Performance Director, Keith Greenfield said: “Jack, Henry and Jamie are just three of a very exciting young crop of cricketers that are coming out of our Academy system under Richard Halsall’s guidance.

"Jack and Henry have both shown that they will be valuable assets to Sussex Cricket going forward in the squad with their skill and character that has been clear to see, and Jamie will show us exactly the same when he gets his chance with his extra pace and bounce.

“All three have exciting futures ahead of them here at the club.”
