Gus Atkinson, Ben Foakes and Cam Steel are the latest players to sign new multi-year contract extensions at Surrey.

Widely regarded as the best wicket-keeper in world cricket, Ben Foakes has been at Surrey since 2015 and has won two County Championship titles as well as playing 20 Test Matches for England. In his time at Surrey, Foakes has amassed over 5,000 First-Class runs, averaging just under 43 and has more than 300 dismissals behind the stumps.

Gus Atkinson, 25, has been part of the Surrey Talent Pathway since the U12 age group. Capable of bowling at over 90 mph, Atkinson made his England debut this summer, picking up the best ever figures on T20 debut for his country. Atkinson has featured regularly in red and white-ball cricket for Surrey since making his First XI debut in 2020; this year he’s taken 20 wickets at an average of 20.2 in just five games.

Cam Steel joined Surrey in 2021 on an initial loan deal before making his stay permanent. The leg-spinning all-rounder played five times in 2022 as Surrey won the County Championship. This season, Steel has played some crucial knocks with the bat including a first First-Class century for the Club against Lancashire in the opening fixture of the year. He averages 47 with the bat this year, having scored just under 300 runs in five matches.

Alec Stewart, Director of Cricket at Surrey CCC, said “I’m pleased to have secured three more players to multi-year extensions at Surrey and am confident that all three will make important contributions to the Club in the years to come.”
