Steve signs contract extension

Somerset County Cricket Club are delighted to be able to announce that Steve Davies has signed a contract extension.

The 35-year-old wicketkeeper batter recently committed himself to the Club for a further 12 months and has agreed terms on a deal which will see him remain at the Cooper Associates County Ground until at least the end of the 2023 season.

Steve, whose cricketing journey began at Victoria Carpets CC in Kidderminster, joined Somerset from Surrey ahead of the 2017 season, and since then he has become a vital element of the squad.

The left hander, who has represented England in eight ODIs and five IT20s, has scored in excess of 4200 runs for the County and has been involved in more than 240 dismissals.

Steve was awarded his Somerset County Cap in 2017.

After committing his future to the County, Steve said: “Somerset is a special club and I’m delighted that my time here will continue. It’s felt like home since the very first moment that I stepped into the dressing room and I can’t imagine playing anywhere else.

“The Club is in a very strong position at the moment and the talent that we have at our disposal is exceptional. I’m delighted that I’m going to be a part of that for at least another two seasons.

“We came so close to silverware last year and I genuinely believe that we have the squad to challenge on all three fronts this season and beyond.”

Somerset Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “Steve Davies is the model professional. He has a wealth of experience, he is exceptional behind the stumps, and he has a genuine desire to part of a winning environment”.

“His attitude is outstanding, and he is brilliant with our younger players. He brings an air of calm assuredness to the dressing room which is a vital component, and everyone associated with the Club is delighted that he has extended his time with us.”
