Sussex County Cricket Club have announced that their England wicketkeeper-batsman Matt Prior has signed a two-year contract extension with the County, which will see him remain at Hove until at least the end of the 2015 season.

The 32-year-old former Brighton College student made his first class debut for Sussex well over a decade ago in 2001, before being awarded his county cap in 2003. He went on to make his England Test debut in 2007 against the West Indies at Lord’s.

He has made nearly 13,000 first-class runs in his career, which includes 75 Test matches for England, making him one of their most capped wicketkeepers.
