Somerset batsman Eddie Byrom has signed a new deal to tie him to the county for the next two seasons. The 22-year-old, who has played in 21 first-class games for Somerset, scoring more than 1,100 runs, was due to fall out of contract but will now remain at Taunton until the end of the 2021 campaign.
The left-hander said: “This is an incredible place to be at the moment. The club is pushing for trophies and the environment is so good. This club has been my home for the last few years and I’m delighted to continue that for another two years. “The group of players we have here is second to none and I’m looking forward to seeing what the next two years hold.
