“Being a Bear and part of this club is something that’s very special and I’m over the moon to sign this contract extension and to commit to the 2020 season," he said.

“We made good progress last year in returning to Division One of the Championship as Division Two champions. However, we all want to build on this.

“I’ve been fortunate to be part of some fantastic teams and to have won all trophies during my time at Edgbaston. But this latest crop of players is equally hungry for success and to deliver more silverware to our supporters.”
