Jack signs contract extension
Somerset County Cricket Club are pleased to announce that Jack Brooks has signed a one-year contract extension.
The fast bowler’s current deal was due to expire at the end of this season, but he has agreed terms on a 12-month extension.
After impressing for Surrey Second XI and Oxfordshire in the Minor Counties competition, Jack made his First Class debut for Northamptonshire in 2009 against Australia. He signed for Somerset ahead of the 2019 season and has taken 56 wickets in 29 matches across the three formats of the game.
He has also played a leading role in the Club’s Community Engagement Programme since his arrival at the Cooper Associates County Ground.
After signing his contract extension, Jack said: “I’m absolutely thrilled. When I first signed for Somerset, I didn’t want to just play for those three years, I wanted to extend that. This is the beginning of that and now I want to finish the season strongly.
“After my surgeries last winter, the desire was still there to come back and play and be a big part of this team. It was great to be able to play in all three formats this year, and we’re driving towards two trophies at the back end of this season, which is where we want to be.
“I’m really excited about the future of this club and that’s why I want to stay here. We’ve got a really talented and fun group of lads and I’m really looking forward to the next 12 months.”
Somerset Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “We are delighted that Jack has extended his contract for another year. He is an outstanding team man and a model professional”.
“He has made some really important contributions across all three competitions this summer, and we were particularly impressed with the way in which he supported and encouraged our developing players during the Royal London Cup”.
“His determination and passion for the game are infectious and his experience will ensure we have a depth of bowling talent at the Club moving forward.”
