Opening batsman, Chris Dent, has signed a two-year extension to his contract with Gloucestershire Cricket, seeing him remain at the Brightside Ground until September 2020.

 Dent, aged 27, graduated from Gloucestershire’s age group squads and Academy and is an outstanding fielder and occasional left arm spinner. He has been awarded the Captaincy of Gloucestershire’s Specsavers County Championship and Royal London One-Day Cup side. 

He said: “It's always a proud moment to sign a contract extension but even more so when it's with the Club I have grown up at and is so close to the hearts of me and my family. 

“I look forward to spending the next three years playing for Gloucestershire and know that my two boys will also grow to love this fantastic Club and have lasting memories of their time at the Brightside Ground, just like I did growing up.”
