Doeschate said: “I'm happy to sign this contract because it shows Essex still want me and I'm part of their long-term plans.

“Now my sights are set on improving once more in 2008. My first goal is to work on my bowling - which I know I've said before but I believe I can still make progress with it - so that I can aim to score 1000 Championship runs and take 20 Championship wickets next season.”
