Wainwright earns Yorks deal

Slow left-armer agrees to stay at Headingley until 2010

Yorkshire bowler David Wainwright has committed his future to the county by signing a contract until the end of the 2010 season.

The slow-left arm bowler enjoyed his most productive summer to date at Headingley Carnegie in 2007 and his performances have been duly rewarded.

The 22-year-old became an ever-present member of the one-day side, finishing the 2007 campaign with 17 wickets at a cost of only 21.39 runs apiece.

Wainwright told the official club website: "I'm really pleased to sign a new deal with the club. Last season was a terrific season to be playing for Yorkshire and the work doesn't stop now.

"I want to cement my place in the one-day side and work my way into Yorkshire's LV County Championship team."

Yorkshire chief executive Stewart Regan added: "It is always good to see a young Yorkshire player do well at the club.

"David produced some tremendous performances in 2007 and this new three-year deal is a reward for the hard work he has put in at the club."
