Banstead cricketer Tom Lancefield and Rory Burns have signed professional terms with Surrey after successful summers in 2010.

Lancefield made his first-class debut against Bangladesh before playing seven LV= County Championship matches - plus five Friends Provident T20 fixture - gaining a first-class average of 31.75.

While wicketkeeper Burns scored more than 600 Surrey Championship Premier League runs, made three centuries for the second eleven and pocketed the 2010 Walter Lawrence Trophy in honour of the 230 he scored for MCC Universities against Oxford MCCU in April.

Surrey cricket manager Chris Adams reckons the pair - who signed one and two-year-deals respectively - can make the grade.

“I am confident that both Tom and Rory will prove to be excellent additions to our squad,” he said.

“Both of these guys have been involved with Surrey for over a decade in different youth teams, so for them to simultaneously graduate into our professional squad says a great deal about the strength of coaching we have throughout our setup.”

Lancefield added: “I feel really privileged to have signed a professional contract with Surrey. I had a great year in 2010 and am looking forward to carrying on improving and establishing myself in all forms of the game.”

And Burns is determined to make his opportunity count.

“It feels like I’ve earned this contract and I am keen to prove myself at Surrey, which is where I want to play my cricket,” he said.

“I am now looking forward to knuckling down and getting myself in the first team.”
