Mark Cosgrove will stay with Leicestershire until at least 2020

Leicestershire have tied batsman Mark Cosgrove down to an extended contract.

Cosgrove will now remain with the club until the end of the 2020 summer, taking his stay at Grace Road beyond the five-year mark.

He said: “I’ve loved my time with the Foxes and it was an easy decision to extend my contract here. We are making good progress under Nico [Paul Nixon] and the coaching staff, and it’s an exciting time for the club.”

Leicestershire head coach Paul Nixon said: “Cozzie [Mark Cosgrove] has been a talisman for the club, and we’re delighted that he and Ackers [Colin Ackermann] will continue to play key roles here.

“Cozzie’s run-scoring and overall record speaks for itself and he also has a huge influence in the dressing room with his insights on batting, and the game of cricket in general. It’s great that he has committed his future to the club.” 

Cosgrove recently passed 14,000 first-class runs and was the county's top scorer during the 2018 Royal London One-Day Cup campaign.
