Harry Finch put pen to paper on a new two-year contract in September 2016, which will see him remain at The 1st Central County Ground until at least the end of the 2018 season.
21 year-old Finch, who was born in Hastings and progressed through the Sussex Age Group and Academy system, began his Sussex career at the age of 13, and made his first-class debut in 2013.
He made his List A bow in the same season, before making his NatWest T20 Blast debut in 2014, and has since looked to secure his place in the first-team, playing in all three formats during the 2016 campaign.
He scored his maiden first-class century this season in the University Match with Leeds/Bradford MCCU before hitting a fine hundred in a Tour Match against a strong Pakistan attack.
Finch’s season has come to an abrupt end due to him sustaining a broken thumb on the opening day of the Specsavers County Championship match with Essex at Colchester, and has been ruled out of Sussex’s remaining fixtures.
Finch said of his new contract, “I’m absolutely delighted. I’m really looking forward to the next two years at the club. I can’t wait to get back out there and playing, and hopefully, winning some trophies in the next couple of years.
“It’s been nice to have a run in the first team this year, despite it being cut short due to injury. It’s been really pleasing and hopefully I can continue over the next two years and cement my place in all formats.”
Sussex’s Head Coach Mark Davis said, “Harry has shown great improvement this year and we are thrilled to have him extend his contact.
“He is another young Sussex born and bred player who is showing considerable potential, and given opportunity will become an integral part of our squad.”
