Graham Wagg extends Glamorgan contract

All-rounder Graham Wagg has signed a contract extension with Glamorgan which keeps him at the county until 2017.

“I’m delighted to sign a new contract with Glamorgan, my family are settled in Cardiff and it’s a great place to play cricket,” said Wagg. “I came to Glamorgan to help the Club win silverware.

“We haven’t got there yet, but the Club is ambitious and keen for success and my own personal ambitions have not changed since I arrived here.

”We’ve some new faces at the Club, including some good young players coming through and with Jacques Rudolph returning as captain I can’t wait to get the new campaign started.”

Wagg joined the Welsh county in 2010 and enjoyed a successful summer last year, with career-best bowling figures of 6/29 in the 10 wicket victory against Surrey at the Kia Oval in Glamorgan’s opening LV= County Championship encounter of 2014 as well as striking his second century – and first for Glamorgan - in first-class cricket with a career-best 116 not out at Canterbury against Kent.

Hugh Morris, Glamorgan chief executive said, “Graham is an established first team player and his key contributions with bat and ball last year demonstrated his importance to the team.

“We are pleased to have secured his services and Graham’s commitment to our cause is a timely boost as our preparations for the new season step up over the course of the coming weeks.”
