Cricket: Fast bowler Maurice Chambers has signed a one-year contract extension with Essex, taking him up to the end of the 2009 season.

The 20-year-old, who was already contracted until 2008, is the latest squad member to commit himself to the Club for the foreseeable future.

Jamaican-born Chambers received his British Citizenship in July and is continuing his rehabilitation from a lumbar spine stress fracture which meant he was unable to feature in the first-team last season.

As a sign of his progress, the former Essex Academy player will be a part of the ECB's fast-bowling skills set at the National Cricket Centre in Loughborough for the second winter running.
