Experienced bowler Charlie Shreck joined Leicestershire in 2014 after making a big impact at both Nottinghamshire and Kent.
Shreck first caught the eye at Cornwall before making his first-class debut for Nottinghamshire in 2003. The tall seamer has since claimed 432 first-class wickets at an average a shade above 30, including a career best return of 8-31.
The 36-year-old collected more than 400 wickets in all competitions during a highly successful nine-year spell at Trent Bridge.
Shreck then sought a new challenge at Kent and was the county's leading LV=CC wicket-taker in the two years he spent at the St Lawrence Ground, picking up 55 wickets in 2012 and 33 in 2013.
But Shreck’s success has not been restricted to the Championship. The bowler has also picked up 63 List A wickets and 23 T20 wickets at an average of 32.33 and 25.95 respectively.
