Sussex sign left-handed youngster


Sussex CCC have added left-handed batsman Matthew Machan to their ranks.

The 18-year-old, who worked his way through the club's youth academy, will join the club on a three-year junior pro contract.

Machan said: "I have put a lot of hard work in to getting where I am, but realise this is only the start.

"I am extremely excited to have signed for Sussex for the next two years. This is a great opportunity at a very successful club," Machan added.

Professional cricket manager Mark Robinson said: "Matt is a promising cricketer who's going to be our first ever junior pro.

"He deserves our support to help fulfil his dream of becoming a successful county cricketer and we are very excited about the talent and potential that this young batsman holds."
