Surrey bowler Stuart Meaker has signed a new three year deal, keeping him with the south Londoners until 2015.
The 23-year-old, who is one of the quickest bowlers in the country, took more than 40 wickets in the County Championship for the second successive year.
The paceman was awarded his county cap ahead of their game with Nottinghamshire on September 4 and is delighted to be staying in south London.
“I’m absolutely over the moon and really glad to be sticking around at such a great club,” Meaker said.
“I feel I’ve got a lot to offer, both to the club and the game of cricket, over the next three years and I’m really glad it’s going to be at Surrey - my home, my family and a really prestigious club.”
Surrey team director Chris Adams is delighted to be able to keep his star bowler.
“Stuart is one of the most exciting young fast bowlers in English cricket and I am delighted he has agreed a new contract with Surrey for the next three years,” he added.
“As well as being one of the fastest bowling talents in the country, Stuart is also a superb individual within the squad, his work ethic and attitude is second to none.
“I look forward to seeing him develop as he continues to grow in confidence both as a cricketer and as a person.”
