Walters signs extension to his Glamorgan contract

Stewart Walters has become the latest Glamorgan player to agree a contract extension with the Welsh county.

Just days after fellow Australian-born team-mate Jim Allenby extended his stay until the end of the 2013 season, Walters has done the same.

Walters, who originally joined Glamorgan in 2011 on a two-year contract, has now agreed terms until 2013.

After shaking off early-season injury, the former Surrey batsman showed his worth with two centuries during Glamorgan’s 2011 County Championship campaign.

The first was a defiant 100 in Glamorgan’s second innings of their clash against Northamptonshire at Swansea, and facing the pink ball he scored 147 in the day-night victory over Kent at the end of the season.

In one-day cricket he also made his mark scoring a record-breaking 19-ball fifty in the Clydesdale Bank 40 match against the Lancashire Lightning at Colwyn Bay.

“Glamorgan is a great club and a place that allows cricketers to express their talents,” said 28-year-old Walters.

“As a club, we are heading in the right direction and, under the leadership of club captain Mark Wallace and vice-captain Jim Allenby, I expect us to grow into a force within all forms of the game.

“Glamorgan re-ignited my career last year and it’s a great honour to have signed on until at least the end of 2013.

“Last summer was a special year for myself, as I rediscovered the love of playing cricket again and I have everyone involved throughout the club to thank for that. I look forward to joining up with the squad for pre-season in 2012 and building on what I achieved last season.”
