Will Davis signed an incremental contract for the 2016 campaign after making his first-class bow the previous summer.
Davis is a promising seam bowler, and another product of the Cricket Derbyshire Academy – in partnership with the University of Derby development system.
He was recently part of the England Under 19s tour of Australia, where he recorded bowling figures of 2-26 in one particular game.
Davis, who was named 2014 Academy Player of the Year, also travelled to Abu Dhabi with the first team before the start of the 2015 season, where he took his first senior wicket for the club.
He made his first-class debut versus Australia in July 2015 where he claimed figures of 3-63 in the first innings, taking the wickets of Michael Clarke, Adam Voges and Peter Nevill.
Davis broke into the First XI during the 2016 season, taking three wickets against Worcestershire and Kent, before taking his first five-wicket-haul for the club, and his career-best figures of 7-146 against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay.
