Former England Under-19 captain Billy Godleman signs a new 12-month contract with Derbyshire.

Derbyshire have handed a one-year contract to Billy Godleman for the 2015 County Championship season.

The 25-year-old batsman arrived at the County Ground last summer following a three-year stint with Essex.

"After a tough start, I've been really happy to contribute to the team's recent winning performances in both the 50-over and four-day formats," he told the club's official website.

"I'm delighted to have the opportunity to continue being part of what Graeme Welch (elite performance director) and his team have started at the club. It's down to me now to work hard on my game during the winter and be ready to contribute to a winning Derbyshire team."

The left-hander has previously captained England at Under-19 level.
