Brydon Carse signs new three-year Durham deal

Durham Cricket are delighted to announce that Brydon Carse has committed his future to the club, by signing a new deal at Seat Unique Riverside.

The 27-year-old, England seamer, has put pen to paper on a new three-year contract, which will keep him in the north east until at least the end of the 2025 season.

Carse, who made his England ODI debut against Pakistan last summer has gone from strength to strength since progressing through the Durham Cricket Academy in 2014.

The right-arm fast bowler made his first-class debut for Durham in 2016 and has gone on to feature 85 times across all formats since then.

Capable of bowling 90mph, Carse has claimed 97 first-class wickets including a career best 6/26 against Middlesex, while also registering 867 red ball runs with 2 half centuries and a best off 77*.

Carse has represented the national side 5 times taking 5/67 against Pakistan at Edgbaston and has also been involved with England Lions in both red and white ball cricket.

Carse said: “At this stage of my career committing to Durham is an easy and exciting decision for me. Durham has nurtured me along the way and allowed me to excel into the cricketer I am today. They have provided me with support on and off the field over the last 8 years. I want to continue pursuing my international ambitions while representing Durham and the North East.

Marcus North, Director of Cricket, said: “I’m extremely pleased Brydon has committed a further three years. His progression during the past few seasons for Durham has been exciting, resulting in England recognition. We look forward in continuing to nurture Brydon’s skills over the next few years and watching his career flourish for Durham and England.”

Durham Cricket can also announce that Ned Eckersley has left the club following the completion of his contract.

Eckersley signed for Durham in 2019, joining from Leicestershire and went onto play in all formats for Durham over a 4-season spell with the club.

The wicket-keeper batter was a regular in the County Championship side where he captained Durham in 2020, scoring over 1500 runs during that time scoring two centuries.

Marcus North, Director of Cricket, said: “We would like to thank Ned for his effort and commitment during his time with us.  From joining the club. Ned has been a real pleasure to work with and we thank his contribution in a Durham shirt, we wish him all the best for the future.
