Middlesex County Cricket Club all-rounder Gareth Berg has signed a contract extension until 2015, the county have confirmed.
Berg broke into the Middlesex first eleven back in 2008 and has gone on to become a crucial member of the side.
The 32-year-old told Middlesex’s official website: “Since arriving at Middlesex five years ago I’ve worked extremely hard to prove myself and establish my position as a regular in the club’s first eleven plans.
“Having successfully done so, I am delighted that the club have been able to reward me with an extension to my contract which will see me remain here for at least the next three seasons.
“I am extremely excited about what the next three years has in store for me and my teammates here at Middlesex, as I feel that we are on the cusp of achieving great things and success is well within our reach.
“I’m looking forward to repaying the club’s faith in me and my ability, and will do all within my power to help Middlesex secure honours in the very near future.”
Managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said: “Ever Since I re-joined Middlesex as MD of Cricket, I’ve come to realise what an important, gifted and dangerous cricketer Gareth is.
“He is still young in cricketing terms, having come into the professional game late, however I am in no doubt that he has a huge amount to offer to Middlesex cricket over the coming years.”
