New deal for Steve

Somerset County Cricket Club are pleased to be able to reveal that wicketkeeper/batsman Steve Davies has signed a contract extension.

The 33-year-old’s current deal was due to expire this winter, but he has now committed himself to the Club until at least the end of the 2021 campaign.

Steve joined Somerset from Surrey on a three-year deal ahead of the 2017 season and has scored over 2100 Specsavers County Championship runs for Somerset and claimed over 130 victims behind the stumps.

After committing his future to Somerset, Steve said: “I’m really pleased that I’ll be staying here for another two years. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Somerset, and I feel that it’s a really exciting time to be involved with the Club.

“You get the sense that we are on the verge of really big things here and I can’t wait to play a part in that. There’s a real buzz around the dressing room and hopefully we can go on to build on the success of this season.”

Somerset CCC Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “We are delighted that Steve has extended his time with Somerset. He is an outstanding ‘keeper and his glovework and experience have certainly been one of the contributing factors to our success over the last three years.

“In addition to the value he gives us with the bat, he is a consummate professional with an excellent understanding of the game. Our younger players will certainly benefit from his experience over the next two years.”
