Sussex all-rounder Kirk Wernars has signed new two-year contract which keeps him with the county until the end of the 2013 season.
The 20-year-old broke into the first team this summer and featured in County Championship and Twenty20 competitions.
"It's fantastic to sign a new contract and I'm really excited to be here for another two years," Wernars said.
"This season was a learning curve and it was great to see how the club operates both on and off the field."
Sussex's professional cricket manager Mark Robinson said: "Kirk has shown early signs that he has it in him to be a very good all-rounder in future years for the club and we are delighted that he has committed himself for a further two years."
