Waller Somerset Bowler Eyeing Silverware

Leg-spinner Max Waller is hoping to help Somerset win silverware next season after penning a new contract. The 30-year-old has spent his entire career with the Taunton outfit, having come through the age groups while at school, before turning out for the second XI in 2007.

Waller made his first XI debut in 2009 – playing 10 Twenty20 matches – and he has become a key figure for the county.

He boasts 111 wickets in as many T20 outings and Somerset have moved to ensure he remains part of their set up.
Somerset have handed out a new deal which will keep him at the Cooper Associates County Ground until at least the end of the 2020 season, and Waller is confident they can achieve success in that period.

Waller told Somerset’s official website: “I’m really pleased to have committed myself to Somerset for two more years. We came really close to winning silverware this year and both the Club and I share the same hunger and drive to achieve this. That is a massive reason for staying here at this special club.

“There’s a genuine belief that this squad can achieve something great and I was always very keen to continue being a part of that.”
