Ben commits his future to the Club

Ben Green, who led this season’s Royal London One Day cup side, has signed a two-year contract extension.

The 23-year-old’s current deal was due to expire at the end of this season, but the Club are pleased to be able to reveal that the all-rounder will be remaining at the Cooper Associates County Ground until at least the end of the 2023 campaign.

Ben, who represented England at Under 15, Under 17 and Under 19 level attended Exeter School and plays club cricket for Exeter CC.

He progressed through the Devon age group system and spent two years on the Devon EPP before joining the Somerset Academy in the autumn of 2013.

Ben was selected onto the England Development Programme based at the National Performance Centre during 2013-14 and made his debut as a 16-year-old for Devon NCCA in 2014.

He joined the professional staff after graduating from the Somerset Academy in 2016 and made his debut for the County in a T20 match at Hampshire later that year.

After committing his future to the Club, Ben said: “It’s been a good year for me, and to be given a leadership opportunity was amazing. The Club has shown faith in me, and I couldn’t be happier.

“I’m trying not to look too far ahead, and I just want to contribute to the team and carry on enjoying my cricket. Hopefully, we can go on to win the two remaining competitions this season and during the next two years I can go on to establish myself as a First Team regular.”

Somerset Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “Over the last few years, Ben has developed into a genuine multi-format all-rounder, and he has demonstrated to us that he has got the right temperament, qualities and attributes to also be an effective leader both on and off the field.”

“Ben has continued to improve year on year since joining the professional staff and we look forward to that growth continuing and we are delighted that he has agreed to extend his contract for a further two years.”
