Ned Eckersley extends Leicestershire contract

Twenty-four-year-old wicketkeeper Ned Eckersley agrees a new one-year contract with Leicestershire.

Ned Eckersley has signed a new contract with Leicestershire.

A number of players have opted to leave Grace Road following the conclusion of the 2014 season, but 24-year-old Eckersley has committed his future to the club until next year.

"It is great that Ned is staying with us at Leicestershire because he is a quality top-order batsman who has a big role to play here," director of cricket Phil Whitticase told the club's official website.

"Ned has scored more than 2,000 runs in first-class cricket over the last two years and has also had an impact in one-day cricket. Ned was our Player of the Year in 2013 and we look forward to him playing a key role in 2015."

The wicketkeeper joined the Foxes back in 2011.
