Derbyshire all-rounder Ross Whiteley has committed his future to the county for the next 3 years.The home grown academy product has had an excellent couple of months after winning Division 2 of the LV County Championship and being selected to represent England in the sixes world cup.
Head Coach Karl Krikken said: "It’s great to be able to secure the services of Ross for the next few seasons and we’re working behind the scenes towards more new contracts in the near future.
"Ross is a rapidly developing home grown cricketer who has come of age during the past two seasons and has the potential to achieve great things during his future career with the Club. He is a great advert for our Academy system.”
Whiteley is preparing to represent England in the Honk Kong Sixes competition on 27th and 28th October, sandwiched by a winter furthering his cricketing education in South Australia.
He added: "With a championship winner’s medal and an international call-up, followed quickly by a new contract that illustrates the club’s faith in me, it’s fair to say I’m a very happy cricketer.
"To achieve something so special alongside such a great group of guys in 2012 was a real career highlight and I can’t wait to come back and get stuck into First Division cricket next summer.”
