Wicket keeper batsman Steven Davies has signed a new contract that will keep him at Surrey County Cricket Club for the next three years.
Davies has been at Surrey for three seasons, playing a key role for the club in all forms of the game. As well as keeping wicket, Davies has scored more 1,000 first-class runs in both seasons he has been playing at the Kia Oval.
Throughout his time with Surrey, Davies has also been involved in the International setup, providing back up for England wicket keeper Matthew Prior. Although yet to make his Test debut, Davies has played eight One Day Internationals and five T20 Internationals and was called up to the squad during England’s recent series against the West Indies.
His new deal will keep him at Surrey until 2015, ensuring he remains a crucial part of the club’s future – both with the bat and the gloves.
Steven Davies said: “I am delighted to be staying with Surrey and I am really looking forward to building on the success this great club has enjoyed over the years. I feel very privileged to be part of such a talented team and I am excited about realising my ambitions for both club and country.”
Surrey Team Director Chris Adams added: “Steven is such an important player and person for the Team. As a wicket keeper who performs vital batting roles in all forms of the game his stock is high so to secure him for a further 3 seasons is great news for the club.
“With his ambition firmly set on team success allied with that of an International career Surrey are primed to see the very best of Steve in the coming seasons.”
