Jamie to Leave Somerset at End of Season

Somerset County Cricket Club can today announce that Jamie Overton will be leaving the Club at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old fast bowler, who has taken 152 First-Class wickets for Somerset since making his debut in 2012, will leave the Club to join London based side Surrey.

Somerset Director of Cricket Andy Hurry said: “We are disappointed to be losing Jamie. He is a popular member of the team and with our membership. He has been a fantastic servant for us since joining the Somerset Academy as a 16-year-old”.

“We offered Jamie an extension but respect his decision and whilst sad to see him go, we want to thank him for all his efforts at Somerset and wish him the very best for the future.

Jamie said: “I’m obviously very disappointed to be leaving Somerset. I’ve had a great 9 years at the Club and loved every minute of it, but I feel it is time for a fresh challenge in cricket. Somerset will always mean a huge deal to me, particularly the supporters who are exceptional. I’d like to thank all the coaching staff for everything they have done for me and the opportunities I have received over my time at the Club.”
