Northamptonshire duo James Middlebrook and Luke Evans have signed new contracts with the county.

James Middlebrook: New deal done

All-rounder Middlebrook, the team's current player of the year, has agreed a two-year extension, while seam bowler Evans has been handed a one-year deal.

Head coach David Ripley said of the pair: "I am very pleased that James' consistency has been rewarded. His all-round game seems to be growing each year and he is the kind of senior player every dressing room wants.

"Luke had an outstanding end to the season and we are all looking forward to him building on that, with the obvious attributes he has to become a top-class bowler."
