Fynn Hudson-Prentice will re-join Sussex at the end of the 2021 season on a multi-year contract.

The 25-year-old, who was born in Haywards Heath, came throuhg the Sussex pathway.

After signing his first professional contract at Sussex in October 2014, he made seven first-team appearances during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

But he was then released in November 2016.

After joining the MCC Young Cricketers programme in 2018, he signed a contract with Derbyshire during the 2019 season.

Since then, he has taken 42 wickets and scored 685 runs – including 99 on debut - in 18 first-class matches.

Hudson-Prentice has taken 26 wickets and 244 runs in 26 T20s for Derbyshire and was an important part of the team that progressed to the county’s first Vitality Blast finals day in 2019.

But the all-round admitted he could not turn down the chance to return to Sussex.

He said:“I’m massively grateful for the time I’ve spent at Derbyshire over the past three seasons, and I wish the club all the best for the future.

“Although I enjoyed my time at the club, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to go back home to where it all began. I’m really looking forward to the next chapter of my career at Hove.”
