Rory Hamilton-Brown has agreed a new two-year contract with Sussex, while Chris Nash has signed a one-year extension.

"This is great news for the club," Mark Robinson, Sussex cricket manager, said, "and is further evidence of our young and promising players dedicating their futures to Sussex."

Nash, 25, shone with the bat after having a difficult first half of the season. He ended 2008 as the third-highest run scorer in the Championship with 980 runs at 37.69.

Hamilton-Brown, 21, had a successful first season with Sussex, playing ten Twenty20 matches, nine one-day matches and two Championship matches.
