McCarter signs contract extension with Gloucestershire
Graeme McCarter is celebrating a new contract with Gloucestershire which means he will be with the West Country club until the end of the 2014 season.
The 19-year-oldall rounder, who has played club cricket with both Killyclooney and Fox Lodge has signed an extended deal which adds two years to his current agreement.
Speaking following penning the new deal Graeme McCarter said: "I'm delighted with the new contract. It takes a lot of the pressure off me as I work on all aspects of my game.
"I feel I have improved a lot for working with John Bracewell and Stuart Barnes this year. I'm looking to get more variation into my bowling and to become a better batsman."
"My target at the start of the season was just to be part of the first team squad.
"My debut came quicker than I expected and I've been in the squad without playing a number of times since the three games I appeared in." .
"It's great to be part of such a young squad. There is a real feeling of togetherness at the club, whether you are in the first team, the second eleven or the Academy. We are building something and I am delighted to be a part of that."
McCarter has been with Gloucestershire since the age of 15, and made his debut at Lord's earlier this season taking three wickets in a dream start of his professional career.
McCarter had played once for Ireland, helping them to an InterContinental Cup win last season against Namibia at Stormont.
