Brett Hutton has built his craft on relentless consistency. In 2023, it bore fruit with his most successful season to date. 

The Worksop-educated seamer took more scalps than anyone in the County Championship and concluded the One Day Cup as the Outlaws’ joint-leading wicket-taker. 

Not content with contributions with the ball alone, he amassed a First-Class best with the bat, too. 

Put simply, it was a year of never-ending milestones for the 31-year-old, who has now signed a two-year contract extension with the Green and Golds, which keeps him at Trent Bridge until the conclusion of the 2026 season.
