James Anyon and Chris Liddle sign new two-year deals with Sussex

Fast bowlers James Anyon and Chris Liddle have both signed new two-year deals with the Sussex County Cricket Club.

Sussex’s Professional Cricket Manager Mark Robinson said, “Jimmy and Chris have both had very good first halves of the summer. We also believe as a club that their best is still to come. Both are beginning now to grow in confidence, and beginning to feel more comfortable in their roles.

“This extra security should allow them to do that. They should continue only to improve as cricketers and develop into potential match winners for the future.”

Anyon said, “I’m delighted to have signed a new contract and I’ll be looking to finish off this season as well as it has started for me.

“Sussex is a great club to play for and I’m grateful for the chance the club have given me in coming here. I’ve settled in well and I’m looking forward to focusing on the next two seasons with the club.”

Liddle said,“A year ago today I wouldn’t have thought I’d be involved in the one-day competitions so it’s been a dream come true to be back in the side after having been out with injury for so long.

“To have signed a new two-year deal with the club is amazing and I look forward to helping the club move forward and be successful in all competitions.”

Anyon, 28, joined Sussex from Warwickshire in 2009 and the rejuvenated seamer took 26 wickets at an average of 26.76 in 10 matches as his side won the LV=County Championship Division Two title last season.

Liddle has been with Sussex since joining from Leicestershire in 2006, and after excelling in the Twenty20 tournament of 2008, he suffered a troublesome two seasons with injury problems.
