As a reward for his commitment and loyalty, Sussex County Cricket Club have awarded Matt Prior with a Benefit Year.

Matthew James Prior was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in the early 1980’s before moving to England at the age of 11. He represented England at all ages up to and including the U19’s squad, making his Sussex debut in 2001. Currently, Matt is arguably the world’s leading wicket keeper batsman in Test cricket, a belief held by a number of players and pundits around the world, with an average of 44.71 and 144 catches to his name.

Matt has hit more than 10,500 first class runs since his debut for Sussex in 2001, and has been involved in three County Championship titles in 2003, 2006 and 2007. With a particularly impressive 201* at the start of the 2004 season, Matt amassed 1,158 runs to be crowned the county’s top scorer for that campaign.

The benefit year will consist of a number of events, with the focal point being to charitable causes close to Matt.
