Jack White has signed a one year extension to his existing contract, now keeping the seamer at the club until at least the end of 2025.

An ever-present in Northamptonshire’s 2023 County Championship campaign, White finished as the side’s leading wicket taker with 50 first-class scalps.

“I’m really pleased to have extended my contract, it was only really at the end of a tough season we showed how good we can be as a team and I’m fully focused on trying to help the team get promoted back to Division One next season where I feel we belong.” White said.

“The fans have always supported me here and I really hope myself and the team can give them some success in 2024.”

After an impressive year for the seamer in 2023, Head Coach John Sadler believed White still had his best ahead of him.

“We’re delighted to have Jack further extend his existing contract even further.” Sadler said.

“He’s worked incredibly hard over recent seasons to become the bowler he now is and we will no doubt see the best of him in the coming seasons.” He added.

Sadler believed White’s work ethic has played a huge part in the success of his short professional career.

“He’s someone who has had to do it the hard way, he got noticed in the leagues, and came into the professional game at a later stage of his development.”

“Through hard work and dedication to his craft, he has become one of the leading seam bowlers in the country.”

“His journey is a real success story and the thought of him and Ben Sanderson opening the bowling together next season is an extremely exciting prospect.”

White’s pre-season preparations will look a little different than his pace bowling counterparts as he heads to New Zealand.

“I’m heading over to New Zealand again like last winter so I can keep bowling in games.

“I have plenty of things to work on bowling and fitness wise and feel like I can still improve my game a lot.”
