Cricinfo staff

Adam London has signed a new two-year contract with Middlesex, keeping him at Lord's till the end of the 2011 season. The 21-year-old left-hander made his first-class and List A debuts for the county in the 2009 season after graduating from the youth setup.

Angus Fraser, Middlesex's managing director of cricket, was delighted that London had extended his deal. "Adam is a committed, capable and exciting young cricketer, as he showed at the end of last season when he scored a couple of half centuries for the first eleven," Fraser told www.middlesexccc.com. "In each innings he showed character, firstly on debut against a strong Gloucestershire seam attack at Lord's, and then when he made a match-saving 65 against Derbyshire at Uxbridge with a broken finger. On both occasions he showed that he is made of the right stuff. Adam has a bright future and it is good to know that he is spending it at Middlesex."

London has played four first-class matches, scoring 190 runs at 27.14, including two half-centuries. He has featured in two List A games as well.
