Carter and White extend Nottinghamshire stay

Seamer Andy Carter and left-arm spinner Graeme White have signed new two-year contracts with Nottinghamshire.

Both players were already under contract until the end of the 2011 season but have agreed new terms on deals that commit them to the club until the end of the 2012 season.

White joined the club from Northamptonshire last year and enjoyed a solid debut season at Trent Bridge, playing his first Championship game as well as being a regular in limited-overs cricket.

"Graeme has quickly become a key member of our team in limited overs matches," said Nottinghamshire coach Mick Newell. "He's here principally for his spin bowling but he has shown promise with the bat and has the potential to become a good all-rounder.

"He'll be keen to play four day cricket and to do that he needs to show that he can bat at eight or nine which he's working hard to achieve."

Carter had a spell on loan at Essex last season taking 13 wickets in three Championship games, including a second innings haul of 5 for 40 against Kent, and Newell feels he has gained the ingredients to perform for Nottinghamshire.

"Andrew needed to gain first-class experience and did very well during his spell with Essex," said Newell. "He has genuine pace and has developed accuracy to go with it which will help to push his case for a place in our side next season."
