Jimmy Adams, James Tomlinson and Danny Briggs have all signed new contracts which will keep them with Hampshire until the end of the 2016 county season.

Adams, who captains Hampshire, represented the club in 16 County Championship matches and scored 1,215 runs, which included one double century and eight half-centuries, at a brilliant average of 43.39.

Tomlinson was Hampshire’s top wicket-taker in last year’s county season as he picked up 47 wickets at an average of 25.85.

Briggs meanwhile claimed 27 wickets in eight County Championship matches at an average of 26.11.

“It’s great to have key players committing to the club,” Hampshire’s director of cricket Giles White said. “All three have come up through the system and all show a genuine passion when representing the county.

“There is a nice balance to the squad, a good blend of experience and young talent, and it’s encouraging that the core of the group are here for the long term.”
