Player Contracts Signed
Dave Nosworthy, the Somerset Director of Cricket, has been kept very busy in recent weeks in negotiations with the players regarding their contracts for the 2014 season and beyond.
The Director of Cricket said: “I am very excited and pleased to be able to announce that we have now signed new contracts with Tom Abell, Alex Barrow, Adam Dibble, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jones, Steven Kirby, Jack Leach, and Max Waller.
“This is great news for the Club and I am sure all Members will be delighted to retain such an exciting group of players who can make such a significant contribution to the future of the Club.
“Contracts have taken some time to resolve this year; inevitably having arrived at the start of the season it was important for me to assess the players capabilities and potential. I am really excited by the combination of youth and experience in our squad which bodes well for the future and I am delighted that these players have committed themselves to the Club.”
The DOC added:”It is self evident that we are still in discussions with a couple of senior players and we are doing everything we can to make sure they stay at Somerset. We will of course let Members know as soon as these have been resolved.”
