Notts CCC sign Brett Hutton to two-year contract extension

Brett Hutton has signed a two-year contract extension at Trent Bridge. The deal will keep him at the club until the end of the 2026 season.

The 31-year-old was the leading wicket-taker in both County Championship divisions, averaging 21.40.

His haul included six five-wicket hauls, doubling his tally in green and gold.

The former Pathway product also recorded a first-class best with the bat, hitting an assured 84 against Kent as Notts fought back from a one-run deficit with three wickets to spare in the second innings to come within a whisker of victory.

It followed a determined display against Lancashire at Trent Bridge earlier in the season, when he batted for two-and-a-half hours to keep the Red Rose at bay and eventually secure a draw.

Hutton clearly enjoyed last season.

He was able to take a chance when it came. It was the reward for a lot of hard work over a number of years. After a decade as a professional at the boyhood club, it feels pretty special for him to have his best season.

But every success has been a collective effort and Hutton is grateful to be in a dressing room with people who enjoys playing and being together.

Many people have stepped up at different points of the season in all formats and it's a great environment to be playing cricket in where everyone pulls together.

It feels like a team that is building towards something. He was delighted to be a part of that for the next few years.

Hutton came through the ranks at Nottinghamshire before being promoted to the Second XI in 2010. He made his first-class debut against MCC in Abu Dhabi the same year.

The seamer returned to Trent Bridge ahead of the 2021 campaign after a temporary move to Northampton in 2017.

He has taken 117 scalps with the red ball in his three years back in the green and gold and has also finished as the top wicket-taker for Notts Outlaws in the 2022 and 2023 One Day Cups.

Peter Moores added that the way Brett played last year was very indicative of who he was as a player and a person.

His skill and consistency are huge, he's improved each year since he came back to Trent Bridge several years ago.

His contributions with the bat are not to be underestimated either, he has shown the ability to get us through difficult situations and put us in the driving seat.

He is a very resilient character who leaves everything on the field. He's risen to every challenge that's come his way throughout his career and he's taken his opportunities when they've come his way.

The way he can share his experiences with others makes him an asset to the team off the field. He is a great role model and it is pleasant to have another home-grown player continue to call Notts his home.
