Contract extension for Adam Hose
Young Somerset batsman Adam Hose has signed a one year contract extension.
The 23 year old from the Isle of Wight has signed a deal that will see him stay with the Club until the end of the 2017 season.
Adam grew up playing through the Hampshire age groups and originally joined Somerset on a 14 month contract in July 2015 after impressing for the Second XI.
After signing his contract extension Adam said: “I am delighted to extent my contract with Somerset. It’s a very exciting club to be around at the moment and it gives me another opportunity to keep knocking on the door of regular first team cricket.
“Looking ahead, my goals for 2017 are pretty simple. Earn a regular spot within the top order, and consistently contribute towards winning games of cricket for Somerset. I’d love to play all formats but all of our batters had a top class season, so staying patient and grabbing the opportunity when it comes is key.
“Playing for Somerset is a very special privilege. The support we get, not only for our home games, but around the country is something very unique. The supporters take great pride in calling themselves Somerset fans and I know the players feel no different. As a squad there is a huge hunger for success growing throughout the changing room and I know we can’t wait to get started come March 1st.”
Somerset Director of Cricket Matt Maynard said: “Adam is a talented batsman, as his 77 against Essex in the Royal London One-Day Cup at Chelmsford in June showed. Whilst his First XI opportunities were limited this year he showed an outstanding attitude and his performances for our Second XI were impressive. He scored over 1700 runs at an average of just over 40 and we look forward to helping him progress next year.
“Adam will be heading to Australia this winter to play Grade Cricket for Kensington which will no doubt help his development and we look forward to welcoming him back to the Cooper Associates County Ground in the New Year.”
