Northants batsman Rob Newton and wicketkeeper David Murphy have both signed two-year contract extensions.
Newton, 21, has scored 454 runs in seven County Championship matches. Murphy has hit 164 in four innings.
Newton said: "I'm pleased that the progress I've made has been recognised. I look forward to becoming a key player for Northants over the next two years."
