Sussex CCC are delighted to announce that batsman Matt Machan has committed himself to the club by penning a new three-year contract at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground.
The 24 year-old, who scored 955 LV=County Championship runs during the 2015 season, has put pen to paper and will remain at Sussex until at least the end of the 2018 campaign.
The Brighton-born left-hander made three centuries in four-day cricket, making his career-best score of 192 against Somerset at Taunton. Machan also smashed a century on the opening day of the season at Hove, against Worcestershire, with his other ton coming against Nottinghamshire at Horsham.
The Scotland International also hit 377 runs in white-ball cricket, with his unbeaten 52 against Hampshire helping the Sharks to a stunning NatWest T20 Blast victory at the Ageas Bowl, as he and Craig Cachopa put on 144 for the fourth-wicket.
Machan said of his deal at Sussex, “I’m absolutely delighted. I’ve played at the club since I was 10 and to sign for at least another three years is fantastic.
“I obviously want to play for Sussex and I feel the club is moving forward with a young squad. Three years definitely gives me that security to try and become a real senior player at this club, and to kick on next year and win games of cricket for Sussex.”
