Seamer Ben Aitchison has signed a new two-year deal with Derbyshire, keeping him at The IncoraTM County Ground until the end of the 2022 season.

The 21-year-old pace bowler initially joined the club on a rookie contract for the 2020 season and impressed on his first-class debut against Nottinghamshire, taking 3-55 in the second innings.

Equally promising Bob Willis Trophy appearances against Yorkshire and Durham followed, before his campaign was curtailed by an ankle injury.

Head of Cricket, Dave Houghton, said: “Ben showed real ability and was becoming a key component of our bowling attack before his injury, so we’re really pleased that he’s committed his future to Derbyshire.

“He’s a developing player, and we believe that through working closely with Steve Kirby, he could become an established player in our team for years to come.”

Aitchison added: “When I first joined the club, I talked about wanting to take any opportunities I was given, and I feel like I did well when I was selected this season.

“I love the setup here, and get on really well with the lads, so It’s really nice to know I’ll be able to grow and develop with them over the next two seasons.”
