Rising star Matt Gilkes has signed a two-year contract extension with the Thunder Nation which keeps him at the club until the end of BBL|12.
He earned his first full-time contract with the Thunder in BBL|09 after joining the club as a local replacement player the season prior.
The young left-handed dynamo made an immediate impact on debut.
Opening the innings with Thunder great Shane Watson, the wicketkeeper-batsman smashed 51 from 38 deliveries against the Scorchers at Perth Stadium in BBL|08.
In 2019/20, Gilkes made both his First Class and One-Day domestic debuts for the NSW Blues.
