Ben Sanderson has signed a new three year deal with Northamptonshire County Cricket Club. The right arm seamer has made an enormous impact on the 2016 season since joining the club full time in February and has been rewarded with a new three year deal.

Sheffield born and bred,‘Sando’, as he is affectionately known, has made a huge impact in the Specsavers County Championship, taking an impressive 44 wickets this season at an average of 21.77, including a career best of 7-22 against Glamorgan in August. He has also been a solid support to the squad in the T20 competition, most notably taking a formidable 3-31 in a thumping win over the Durham Jets in the NatWest T20 Blast Final.

Northants' Head Coach, David Ripley, said, “Sando is a great story, getting a second chance from Minor Counties cricket and turning that into a three year deal. He is a very skilful bowler and very popular member of the squad”.

Commenting on his new contract, Ben said, “I’m delighted to have signed a new three year deal with the club. I’m very much looking forward to playing with these boys for more years to come. The club has huge ambitions to improve in the county championship and that’s something I can’t wait to be a part of.”
