Jack Brooks signed a three-year contract for all formats of the game in 2018, which saw him commit his future to Somerset until at least the end of the 2021 season.
After impressing for Surrey Second XI and Oxfordshire in the Minor Counties competition, Jack made his First Class debut for Northamptonshire in 2009 against the touring Australians. He made an immediate impression by taking two wickets in an over.
Since that day he has gone on to take over 400 wickets in 114 First Class matches with a best of six for 65 at an average of 27.52 with an impressive strike rate of 46.9.
He has also taken 37 List A wickets at an average of 34.48 with a best of three for 30 and 47 T20 wickets at an average of 27.27 with a best of five for 21.
Jack played a vital role in Yorkshire’s County Championship title win in 2014 by taking 68 wickets and was also integral to the County retaining the title the following year.
Jack first season for Somerset was interrupted through injuries but he still made crucial contributions throughout a successful County Championship campaign. He ran through the Surrey line-up on the final day at Guildford to claim his maiden 5-wicket-haul for the Club and was a consistent threat with the new ball in his hand.
Since joining the club in 2019, Jack has taken 53 first class wickets with a best of 5-33 against Surrey and scoring 264 runs at an average of 16.50. Brooks made his List ‘A’ and T20 debuts in 2021, taking 11 wickets across the two formats.
He has signed a one year contract extension until the end of the 2022 season.
