FORMER Oxfordshire youngster Miles Hammond has agreed a new contract at Gloucestershire.

The former St Edward's pupil's new deal will keep him at the club until the end of the 2022 season.

Hammond, who first joined as a 14-year-old when he was predominantly a spinner, featured in the top order in all formats last season and particularly caught the eye in the Vitality Blast.

He finished with 322 runs in the competition for Gloucestershire, including a 63-run knock against Middlesex at Cheltenham which was a new career high in the format.

He said: “I’m very excited to have signed a new two-year contract extension at Gloucestershire Cricket.

"I’m thankful for the belief the club have shown me and I can’t wait to get back out on the field with an exciting bunch of lads once this uncertainty is over."

Head coach Richard Dawson said: "We are delighted that Miles will be with us over the next few years.

"He is a young lad who is eager to learn and has developed his game each year at the club.

"We look forward to working with him more and seeing how he matures as a cricketer."
