Steve signs contract extension
Steve Davies has become the latest Somerset player to commit his future to the County.
The 34-year-old wicketkeeper batsman has agreed terms on a contract extension which will see him remain in the West Country until at least the end of the 2022 season.
Steve, who developed his skills as a youngster at Victoria Carpets CC in Kidderminster, first arrived at Somerset on a three-year deal from Surrey in time for the 2017 campaign. Since then he has cemented his place in the team, scoring over 3300 runs and being involved in nearly 200 dismissals for the Club.
The left hander, who has featured in eight ODIs and five IT20s for England, was awarded his Somerset County Cap in 2017.
After putting pen to paper, Steve said: “My time at Somerset so far has been extremely special and I’m really pleased to have extended my stay. The last few years have shown that we could really be on the threshold of something very special and I can’t wait to play a part in that.
“We have a great squad of players and everyone is pushing to get better every day. The atmosphere in the camp is outstanding and hopefully we can push on to even bigger things in the next few years.”
Somerset Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “Steve Davies is exactly the sort of player that every club wants in their dressing room. He is hugely experienced, his glovework is outstanding and the value he adds with the bat in a number of positions within the top order is priceless.
“He has played a very big role in our relative success over the last few years and we are delighted that he has extended his stay.”
Somerset Head Coach, Jason Kerr said: “Steve has been the consummate professional since joining us and he has been exceptional in every respect. His high skill levels and calm assured approach both with the gloves and the bat have been very important factors for us in the last few years and we’re really pleased that he has extended.”
