All-rounder Nils Priestley has signed a one-year deal with Derbyshire for the 2020 season.
The 19-year-old begins a place on the Loughborough MCCU programme, and will join up with the Derbyshire squad in April ahead of the 2020 season.
Priestley, a graduate of the Cricket Derbyshire Academy in partnership with the University of Derby, featured regularly for the Second XI throughout 2019.
He scored 136 runs in the Second XI Championship, including one half-century, while he also struck 84 against Northamptonshire a friendly.
He follows in the footsteps of Alex Hughes, Matt Critchley, Sam Conners and Harvey Hosein in coming through the ranks and will now look to earn a place in the first team.
