Michael Richardson signs Durham contract extension

Michael Richardson has extended his contract at Durham until the end of the 2014 County Championship season.

The 26-year-old is a back-up for regular wicketkeeper Phil Mustard, and established himself among the Durham batsmen last season.

"I'm really looking forward to next year and proud to have extended my stay with Durham," Richardson said. 

"I got my place in the first team towards the end of last season and that's where I would like to start."

He added: "2013 is going to be a crucial year for me and the club and hopefully we can win a trophy to really top it off."
