Ireland's Gary Wilson signs new Surrey contract

Ireland wicketkeeper Gary Wilson has signed a contract extension with Surrey to keep him at The Oval until 2012.

The 25-year-old was behind Steven Davies in the pecking order of keepers last season but forced his way into the side through his batting ability.

He told the club website: "It is brilliant to be extending my deal.

"I really enjoy playing for the club and feel I can make a big contribution as we continue to move the team in a positive direction."

Wilson, who is playing in the World Cup for Ireland, scored his maiden first-class and one-day international centuries last year and averaged 43.62 in six first-class games for Surrey.

He added: "Following my performances last year, I am looking to continue scoring runs and push my case for selection at all times."

Surrey's professional cricket manager Chris Adams added: "Gary is a hugely popular member of the playing staff here both in the dressing room and around the club in general.

"I am very pleased he has extended his contract and look forward to him continuing to develop his game over the next two years."
