Worcestershire CCC is delighted to announce that Jack Shantry has signed a two year contract extension with the Club.
The left-arm seamer debuted for Worcestershire CCC in 2009 and his new deal will see Shantry remain at the Club until the end of the 2015 season.
During his career with Worcestershire CCC, Shantry has collected 97 First Class wickets including a career best return of 7-60 in May against Oxford MCCU.
The 2013 season has been fruitful for Shantry, claiming 33 First Class wickets in his nine appearances so far. Shantry has also contributed with the bat, scoring his maiden First Class half century at New Road against Kent last week. In the limited over format, the 25 year-old has picked up 22 wickets in Worcestershire CCC's Yorkshire Bank 40 and Friends Life t20 campaigns this summer.
Regarding his contract Shantry commented "I am delighted to commit my future to Worcestershire CCC. We have a talented squad and I hope to play a part in making us a successful team in the coming years."
Steve Rhodes, Director of Cricket, said "I am pleased Jack has secured his future with Worcestershire CCC for a further 2 years. He has forced his way into the four-day team through excellent performances and when you add his one-day bowling he is an extremely important player to our squad."
Rhodes added "I know Jack is driven to reach higher accolades in the game and I am sure we can give him the opportunities and platform to show what he can do. This is another important signing for the Club as we look to develop a nucleus of players committed to improving the Clubs chances of success across all forms of the game."
