Club Statement: Vernon Philander
Somerset CCC can today confirm the cancellation of Vernon Philander’s contract by mutual agreement.
Vernon was due to join the Club in early April, but the impact of the global Coronavirus outbreak and postponement of cricket until at least the 1st July have resulted in both parties reluctantly agreeing to cancel the contract with immediate effect.
Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “These are clearly very uncertain and challenging times for all Counties with no cricket until at least the 1st July and the likelihood of a condensed and truncated season.
“It was such an exciting prospect to visualise Vernon returning to the Cooper Associates County Ground, but given the current uncertainty the cancellation of his contract was a prudent and sensible decision.
“I would like to thank Vernon and his management team for their understanding of the current situation and we hope one day to see Vernon back wearing Somerset colours”Back to News
