All-rounder Aaron Thomason and wicketkeeper Alex Mellor have signed new contracts with Warwickshire.

Thomason, 21, has agreed a two-year deal while Mellor, 27, will remain at Edgbaston for the 2019 campaign.

Thomason has made 16 List A appearances for Warwickshire and played 28 T20 games for Birmingham Bears since his debut in 2014.

Mellor was a regular for the second XI in 2018, scoring 883 runs and taking 29 catches in all formats.

"Aaron has been a consistent performer in white-ball cricket for the last two years and he can make a serious push to play in the Championship side," sport director Ashley Giles told the club website.

"Alex is an excellent professional and has enjoyed a good season with the bat and gloves in the second team."
