Former England wicketkeeper Chris Read has signed a new two-year contract with Nottinghamshire, which will keep him with the club until the end of the 2016 county season.

Read represented Nottinghamshire in 17 County Championship matches last season and scored 952 runs, which included six half-centuries, at a solid average of 43.27. He also took 57 catches behind the stumps and stumped one batsman as well.

“I’d like to play on for the next two seasons as a bare minimum,” he said. “I’m keen to help us grow and win trophies over the next couple of years.”

Nottinghamshire’s director of cricket Mick Newell added: “Chris was keen to extend his contract and I was happy to oblige.┬áHe’s a key player for us and still leads the way in his approach to matches and training.

“I fully expect him to sign a further extension when the time is right, he has a lot of cricket left in him.”
