Jamie Overton to join Surrey

Craig Overton - joining Surrey

Somerset pace bowler Jamie Overton will join Surrey at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has agreed a three-year deal and will make the switch in November.

“We’re very pleased Jamie will be joining us and I look forward to seeing him perform in a Surrey shirt,” Surrey director of cricket Alec Stewart said.

Overton has taken 164 wickets in his 64 first-class appearances and added: “From the moment that Alec made contact and talked me through the opportunity, I was excited about coming to Surrey.

“I’m obviously aware of the club’s history and success and these were all major attractions for me in moving from Somerset.”
