Bowler Alan Richardson has agreed an extended contract with Worcestershire until the end of the 2012 season.

The 36-year-old is the second highest wicket-taker in Division One of the County Championship this summer, with 39 dismissals in eight matches.

"I'm enjoying my time at New Road," he said. "I look forward to carrying on my career at such a great club."
