ESSEX bowler Tony Palladino has signed a one-year contract extension that will see his stay extended until the end of the 2010 season, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
The 26-year-old had a frustrating season, playing just three County Championship matches, taking seven wickets, but did pick up 4-68 against Leicestershire.
Palladino, who has made his debut in 2003, is now hoping to make more of a contribution in the First Division next season.
"I am really pleased to have signed a contract extension with Essex," he said.
