Ollie Signs Contract Extension
Somerset County Cricket Club can today officially announce that Ollie Sale has signed a contract extension.
The 25-year-old bowler has agreed a two-year deal which will see him remain at the Cooper Associates County Ground until at least the end of the 2022 season.
Ollie, whose current contract was due to expire this winter, was an integral element of Somerset’s Vitality Blast squad this season and was the Club’s leading wicket taker in the competition.
He started his cricketing journey at Tavistock CC as a junior and was educated at Sherborne school in Dorset, after initially attending Mount House prep school. His Devon League career began with Tavistock in 2012 and continued at Exeter CC. Sale played his way through the Devon age groups since age 10 and graduated from the Somerset Academy in 2014. He made his First XI debut in a T20 match against Hampshire in 2016.
After committing his future to Somerset, Ollie said: “It is very exciting to be a part of such a talented and tight knit group and there is definitely a belief among us that we can continue to push for silverware.
“This year has given me some great experiences to learn and reflect on, and I look forward to continuing to develop my career and winning games with Somerset over the next two seasons.”
Somerset Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “Ollie worked incredibly diligently over the winter which resulted in him earning the opportunity to play a significant role during this summer’s Vitality Blast. He has demonstrated the tenacity, determination and inner drive to succeed and with the opportunities and experiences gained this summer we really look forward to working with him over the next two years and that journey continuing with the Club.”
