Leicestershire CCC batsman Matthew Boyce has agreed a new deal that will keep him at Grace Road until at least the end of the 2014 campaign.
Boyce is the sixth player to sign a contract in the last few days, following in the footsteps of Michael Thornely, Rob Taylor, James Sykes, Angus Robson and Ollie Freckingham.
Boyce passed 5,000 runs in all competitions for Leicestershire during the 2012 season with his tally of 77 against Essex in the LV=CC game.
The left-hander, who recently celebrated his 27th birthday, has scored 3,717 first-class runs for the Club with a best of 122 and has also posted 1,116 List A runs.
Boyce is the second leading LV=CC runscorer in 2012 with 714 and the batsman has also notched 426 runs in Friends Life t20, where he cemented his place in the team this season.
Leicestershire Chief Executive Mike Siddall said:" We’re delighted that Matthew has agreed to continue his career with Leicestershire.
“He’s had an excellent season in all forms of the game and the team has really benefited from his experience.”
