Trio commit to Taunton futures

Fast bowlers Lewis Gregory, Jamie and Craig Overton have committed their futures to Somerset, signing contracts keeping the trio at Taunton until the end of the 2018 season.

Both Jamie and Craig, twin brothers, have been rewarded following impressive seasons which led to recognition in England’s ODI squad, while Gregory has also caught the eye of the selectors.

Director of Cricket Matthew Maynard said: “Lewis, Craig and Jamie are outstanding cricketers with the potential to become even better.  They have all performed extremely well this year and have rightly received international recognition.  We are very pleased to have secured their services because they will be an absolutely vital part of this Club for the years to come.  They are great lads who offer a lot both on and off the field.”

Jamie Overton also commented on putting pen to paper: “I want to be able to do as much as I can for Somerset, so to sign up until 2018 is great.  Twins always seem to do the same sort of things so for Craig to be signing as well is nice.  We’re here together for the next few years so hopefully we can put in some good performances together.”
