  Jack Leach commits his future to Somerset  
 

SOMERSET's Jack Leach has signed an extension to his contract that will see him remain at Taunton at least until the end of 2024.

The 29-year-old’s current contract was due to expire at the end of 2022, but he has signed a two-year extension which will see him play for the club he supported as a boy until at least the end of the 2024 season.

Jack, who recently excelled in England’s Test series win over Sri Lanka, successfully progressed through the Somerset Age Group Pathway before making his debut for the County against South Africa in 2012.

Since that day, the left armer has gone on to take over 240 wickets for the Club, and his consistently outstanding performances for Somerset have seen him receive recognition at International level. Following the recent series, Jack now has 44 Test wickets from 12 matches at an average of 30.50 and has become England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker in Sri Lanka.

After committing his future to his home County, Jack, who also has a longstanding relationship with Taunton Deane CC, said: “I am very excited to have signed an extension with Somerset. It is a proud day for me and my family.

“I would like to thank Andy Hurry, Jason Kerr, all the coaches, the staff and my teammates for their support. I would also like to thank the Members and fans. I would like to send my best to them at this difficult time and say how much we miss you. We can’t wait to have you back!

He added: “I am very excited about what we can achieve as a group. There is a good feeling around the boys, and I can’t wait for the season to start!”
