Derbyshire all-rounder Alex Hughes has signed a one-year contract extension to keep him at the 3aaa County Ground until the end of the 2017 season.
The right-arm seamer appeared 24 times across all formats in 2015 and recorded his maiden first-class century against Northamptonshire.
In total, the 24-year-old has made 86 appearances for Derbyshire, scoring 1,456 runs and claiming 60 wickets across three formats.
Derbyshire elite performance director Graeme Welch said: “Alex performed well across all three competitions in 2015, making match-winning contributions on several occasions – most notable in the Championship match at Northampton and the Twenty20 victory over Yorkshire at Chesterfield.
Very good news for @DerbyshireCCC with @yozza18 signing on until end of 2017.
