Sussex have signed Jason Voros, a 26-year-old seam bowler, on a one-year contract. Although Vroos is Australian, he has Hungarian parents and so is eligible to play as a non-overseas player from May 1 when Hungary joins the European Union.
"It's a fantastic opportunity for me," he said. "To be joining the County Champions is awesome. If you're going to play County cricket then you might as well join the best and I'm looking forward to the challenge. My signing with Sussex shows that all club cricketers can aim at the top."
Voros was born in Canberra and has played one-day cricket for Australian Capital Territories. Last season he played for Sussex's 2nd XI, taking 14 wickets in four appearances.
