Greg Cork has signed a one-year contract extension with Derbyshire until the end of the 2017 season.

Cork, who made his first-team debut in 2014, has played 13 games for the county, taking 13 wickets with best bowling figures of 2-17 against Somerset in a List A fixture in 2015.

The 21-year-old has played 19 games in total for the Second XI this season, scoring 362 runs which includes a high score of 73 versus Lancashire in May.

He has also claimed 17 wickets, with best bowling figures of 3-21 coming against Lancashire in August.

Head Coach, John Sadler said: “Greg has worked extremely hard over the summer and his game, both with bat and ball, continues to improve.

“He’s taken wickets and scored runs for the Second XI this summer and is developing into a genuine all-rounder across all forms.

“Greg may have had limited opportunities in the first team this season, but we believe he has plenty of potential and can be someone who can produce match winning performances for Derbyshire.”
