Carse commits until 2021

Durham County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that all-rounder Brydon Carse has signed a new three-year contract.

The 23-year-old, who made his first-class debut for Durham in 2016, had gathered the attention of a number of First Division counties, but has committed his future to Durham.

Carse burst onto the scene at Emirates Riverside after being propelled into the first team plans and ended with 17 wickets across eight matches during his first season, which included him bouncing back from a mid-season injury suffered at Trent Bridge.

The all-rounder, who hasn’t featured at all during the current season due to a knee injury, has demonstrated excellent ability at both ends, averaging a First Class 38.14 with the bat and reaching speeds of 90mph with the ball.

“I’m delighted to have signed a new deal with Durham; I enjoy living in the North East and Emirates Riverside is a special place to play cricket,” Brydon said.

“I believe the club is on the way up and following conversations with my dad, Jon Lewis and new Chief Executive Tim Bostock, I’m convinced that this is the best place for me to continue to develop my cricket and compete for silverware.”

Durham County Cricket Club, Head Coach, Jon Lewis, added: “Brydon is an exceptionally talented young man who, despite struggling with injuries, has demonstrated his potential with both bat and ball.

“Brydon deciding to stay at Durham demonstrates the direction the club is moving in and gives us a lot of positivity going into next season.

“Our aim is to achieve promotion back to Division One and Brydon will certainly help us to do that.”
