"There’s never been a thought since the second time I walked through the gates that I’d play anywhere else. Now I’m back I don’t ever see me doing anything other than wearing the brown cap."

− Gareth Batty

"The club are indebted to Gareth Batty for the job he did in the second half of this season. At one of the hardest times in the history of the club the character and leadership abilities he showed were absolutely immense."

− Surrey County Cricket Club

"As a player he is also a fantastic asset to the club – both as a bowler, a lower order batsman and as a galvanising influence on the field – and I am very happy indeed we have secured his services for another two years."

− Richard Thompson - Surrey Chairman
