Jennings has signed a contract to extend his stay at Emirates Durham ICG until the end of the 2015 season.

Sunderland-born wicketkeeper and batsmen Phil Mustard has also signed a two-year contract extension to stay with Durham until the end of the 2016 season.

Mustard, who made his first class debut in 2002, has been an almost ever present in the Durham side that has won three LV=County Championships.

Mustard is known for his aggressive batting style he has been central to Durham’s limited over cricket plans, opening the batting in both forms of the game.

He scored 823 first class runs in 2013, the most he has scored in a first class season and was a key part of most recent championship win.

A club spokesman said: “The club are delighted that both academy graduates have signed on with the LV=County Champions and both will be in action for the champions in the season opener versus the MCC in Abu Dhabi this March.”
