Kirtley: New deal
Sussex have handed one-year contract extensions to veteran seamers James Kirtley and Jason Lewry.
"It's great to have these two seasoned campaigners on board for another year."
Sussex cricket manager Mark Robinson Quotes of the week
The pace pair have been crucial to the Hove outfit's bid for silverware in recent years and Lewry, who made his Sussex debut in 1994, finished the 2008 LV County Championship campaign as the county's leading wicket-taker with 41.
That haul included the 37-year-old's milestone 600th first-class wicket.
While Lewry's contract is focused only on four-day cricket, former England bowler Kirtley, 33, will continue to play in both forms of the game.
Mark Robinson, Sussex's cricket manager, said: "It's great to have these two seasoned campaigners on board for another year.
"James' proven expertise in one-day cricket, of which there are three competitions, and his desire and hunger still to make a mark in four-day cricket, makes him a valuable member of our squad.
"In Jason we're lucky to have one of the best new ball bowlers in the country still with us along with his appetite to win further trophies."
