Gloucestershire left-hander and Irish captain William Porterfield has signed a two-year contract extension with the LV County Championship Division Two side.
The 24-year-old was 12 months into a two-season deal when the county offered him improved terms.
Porterfield from Londonderry hit 718 runs, including seven 50, in 12 County Championship matches in his debut season - at an average of 32.6
After proving himself a hit at Nevil Road, it is just reward for the Ireland batsman and he is looking forward to the challenge ahead.
"I am looking forward to building on what has been a good first season for me," he said.
