ACADEMY graduate Tom Knight has signed a professional contact with Derbyshire County Cricket Club.

The three-year contract will commence at the conclusion of this season’s summer contract and will take Knight through to the end of the 2014 season.

It rewards a series of impressive first and second team performances by the 17-year-old left-arm spinner, particularly in the Friends Life t20 matches.

Head Coach Karl Krikken said: “Tom is a very talented young player and we are delighted to have secured his future as a Derbyshire cricketer. He has enjoyed an impressive start to life in the first team and long may that continue.”

Knight is also on the England and Wales Cricket Board’s Elite Development Programme.
