Lewis Goldsworthy has extended his contract with the English County Cricket Club Somerset. He signed a two-year contract extension with the club, ensuring his time with the team till 2023.
The left-arm spinner and a right-handed batsman joined the Somerset Academy in 2016. He made a name for himself scoring 178 runs for Somerset against Surrey in the Under-17s game in 2018. Goldsworthy was also a star performer for England Under 19s during the 2020 World Cup.
Goldsworthy made his debut in the First XI during the last season’s Vitality Blast T20 tournament and delivered an impactful performance. He scored an unbeaten 38 while picking up 2 wickets for 24.
“I’m really excited to be a part of this squad for another few years. We’ve got a really exciting group here at the moment with a nice mix of youth players and quality experienced professionals, so hopefully, we can build on last year and go one better in the Championship,” Lewis Goldsworthy said.
“As I said when I signed my first contract, this is like a dream come true because I grew up supporting the Club and watching the games here in Taunton,” the 20-year old added.
Somerset Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said on Goldsworthy’s contract extension, “Lewis is a player of considerable promise, and he demonstrated that last year. To perform in the manner that he did on his debut showed not only his talent but his mental fortitude. His journey is going to be an exciting one and we are extremely pleased that we are going to be playing a further part in that moving forward.“
“It was fantastic for Lewis to get his opportunity and he really showed what he can do with the bat, with the ball and in the field. He’s a three-dimensional cricketer and he’s is going to further improve, which is so exciting for the Club and our supporters,” Head of the SCCC Talent Pathway, Steve Snell said.
