ENGLAND spinner Jack Leach has signed a new contract with Somerset.
The Taunton-born 27-year-old has penned a one-year extension which will see him stay at Somerset until at least the end of the 2020 season.
Leach, who has played more than 70 first-class matches for his home county said: “It’s an honour to represent Somerset – the club I’ve supported since I was a little boy. I’m living that little boy’s dream every time I put on the shirt and play in front of the Somerset supporters.
“I’m very proud to have signed a new contract with my home county.”
Somerset head coach Jason Kerr said: “It’s great news for all connected to the club that Jack has extended his current contract. Personally, I’m delighted that Jack has committed his future to the club. He continues to contribute with match-winning performances and behaviourally epitomises everything we are trying to achieve at the club.”
