Sussex CCC have announced that leg-spinner Will Beer has signed a new two-year contract with the county, which will see him remain at The PROBIZ County Ground until at least the end of the 2014 season.

Beer, 24, is another graduate of Sussex’s Youth and Academy set-up and has mainly been used in one-day cricket during his time in the first team.

He played in ten of the Sharks’ Friends Life t20 matches in 2012 taking 8 wickets, whilst also featuring in seven Clydesdale Bank 40 games, claiming 9 wickets with a best of 3 for 27 in the crucial home clash with Warwickshire Bears.

Beer, who starred in Sussex’s Twenty20 Finals Day victory in 2009, said, “It is a fantastic honour for me to sign a new two-year contract with Sussex.

“I have grown up playing my cricket with Sussex and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and hopefully contributing towards winning trophies for this club”.

Sussex’s Club Coach Mark Davis said, “Will has steadily improved year upon year and it is great from a club perspective that he has signed a new contract.

“Hopefully this will allow him to develop further and develop into the complete player we think he can be.”
