English wicket-keeper batsman Steven Davies has extended his contract with England’s Somerset County Cricket Club. His contract extension has ensured his time with the club for at least the end of the 2022 campaign.
Steven Davies, who has played eight ODIs and five T20Is for the England national team, joined the Somerset County Cricket Club in 2017 on a three-year contract. After joining Somerset, he went on to register 3300 runs and aided in 200 dismissals. The left-handed batsman previously played for Surrey from 2010 to 2016.
After signing his contract extension with the club, Davies 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.”
“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,” Somerset Director of Cricket Andy Hurry said.
“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,” he added.
“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,” Jason Kerr, Somerset Head Coach said.
