Young fast bowler Matthew Dunn has committed his future to Surrey County Cricket Club by signing a one year extension to his contract.
Dunn, 20, is now under contract at the Kia Oval until the end of the 2014 season.
He made his breakthrough in 2011 after being drafted into the Surrey side midway through a four day match in Derbyshire when Jade Dernbach was called up to the England squad. With Surrey needing to overturn a first innings deficit Dunn took 5/56 as the hosts were blown away for 99, allowing his side to secure a seven wicket win on the final day.
2012 was another strong year for the Normandy CC player as he took thirteen wickets at an average of 23.53 in the Second XI Championship and made two further first-class appearances, against Leeds Bradford MCCU and in the final game of the campaign against Lancashire.
Speaking to the Surrey website this week, Matthew Dunn said: “I am very pleased to have agreed another year on my contract. 2013 is an exciting time for Surrey and I really look forward to contributing on all fronts to what I hope will be a hugely successful year.”
Surrey CCC Team Director Chris Adams added: “Matt is a very exciting young talent and I am delighted that he has committed his future to Surrey. We all know his future potential and I very much forward to working with him to achieve this.”
