Four of Essex County Cricket Club’s bright young talents have committed their futures to the County Champions.
Aaron Beard, Aron Nijjar and Callum Taylor have signed contract extensions, while young Academy talent Feroze Khushi has signed his first professional contract with the club.
Beard has signed a one-year contract extension which keeps him at the club until the end of 2019, while Nijjar and Taylor have signed extensions until the conclusion of the 2018 season.
18-year-old Khushi has put pen-to-paper on a two-year professional contract which sees him rewarded for a number of impressive performances with the Second XI.
Head coach Chris Silverwood said: “It is always important to tie up our young, exciting players to contracts so they can focus solely on their cricket.
