Nottinghamshire seamer Charlie Shreck has signed a new two-year contract.
Shreck has claimed four five-wicket Championship hauls this season
The 28-year-old missed the entire 2005 season because of a stress fracture but has captured 55 wickets in only 10 Championship matches this summer.
"I'm really pleased about signing a new deal as there's no other place I'd want to play," Shreck commented.
"This season has gone far better than I could have hoped because after my injury I knew I had a job to do to earn my place back in the side."
Shreck, who stands 6ft 7ins tall, began his county career in 2003 having been spotted playing Minor Counties cricket for his native Cornwall.
He took 21 wickets in nine Division One matches that season and 29 in seven Division Two matches the following year as the club made an immediate return to the top flight following relegation.
This season he took a hat-trick against Middlesex and has been awarded his county cap.
"I'm sure he can do even better things," said Notts Director of Cricket Mick Newell added.
"He overcame a lot of frustration missing out on playing last year and has returned as a better bowler. He's been a consistent performer."
