Worcestershire have secured contracts for three young players over the next two years.

David Wheeldon and Jack Manuel have signed two-year contracts while Richard Jones, the fast bowler, has penned a one-year deal with the club.

"All three players have really progressed this year. David has scored nearly 1000 runs in the 2nd XI and is a very determined young player," said Steve Rhodes, the director of Worcestershire cricket, said. "Richard came through a difficult winter but has shown the strength of character I want to see and his recent career best against Warwickshire was heartening.

"Jack Manuel is an England Under-19 player and is an aggressive batsman who has just finished school so is now able to become a professional cricketer."
