Derbyshire County Cricket Club’s title-winning captain Wayne Madsen has signed a new three year contract.

The 28-year-old batsman becomes the latest player to commit his future to the club, securing a new deal to remain at the County Ground until the end of 2015 season.

In his first season as captain in 2012, Madsen led a young Derbyshire side to the LV= County Championship Division Two title; their first trophy since 1993.

He said: ‘What we achieved last year was incredible. This is a club that‘s growing and moving in the right direction on and off the field. I’m so excited about where we’re heading and looking forward to challenging ourselves in Division One next season.”
