Luke Fletcher has signed a new three year contract with Nottinghamshire that commits him to the club until the end of the 2014 season.

The Nottingham-born seamer has 29 LV= County Championship wickets to his name this season and rejected interest from two other counties to commit his future to the club.

“I was always keen to stay with Nottinghamshire and I’m pleased to have the security of a three year contract,” said Fletcher.

“There are a lot of talented players here and we want to get back in the hunt for trophies."

After joining Notts on their pre-season tour of South Africa, Fletcher made his first class debut in 2008 and has since firmly established himself in all formats. 

He has played club cricket for Clifton and Papplewick & Linby and has a first class 92 to his name having helped Nottinghamshire to a comprehensive win over Hampshire at the Rose Bowl in June 2009.

“We’ve seen a steady improvement from Luke ever since he broke into the team and now he needs to make the transition to become a senior player in our ranks,” said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.

“He has played very well this season and caused problems for a number of accomplished batsmen. He has proved effective with the new ball and he’s earned this contract on merit.”
