Will Beer has signed a new one-year contract with Sussex.

Sussex Academy graduate Beer made his first team debut for the county as a 19-year old in 2008.

Since then he has taken 153 wickets for the club in 166 matches across all three formats.

Beer has made 99 appearances and taken 77 wickets for Sussex's T20 side. The 29-year-old featured in nine of Sussex’s T20 Blast fixtures in 2017, taking seven wickets at an average of 25.85 and a strike rate of 17.1.

Will played in three One-Day Cup matches, the Specsavers County Championship match against Leicestershire in July and against South Africa A at Arundel in May.

During that tour match, he took 6-29 in the South Africans' first innings, his best bowling figures in first-class cricket.

Beer said: “I am really happy to be signing another contract at my home club.

“From a personal and team perspective, I am looking forward to kicking on from last season and hopefully bringing success and silverware back to Hove.”

Sussex Director of Cricket Keith Greenfield said: “It’s great that Will has signed for a further year.

“We look forward to him continuing to push for a place in all competitions going forward."
