Glamorgan sign up Huw Waters & John Glover on two-year deals

Huw Waters

Seam bowlers Huw Waters and John Glover have both signed new two-year deals to keep them at Glamorgan until the end of season 2014.

Waters had been given permission to talk to other counties, but has decided to stay at the Swalec Stadium.

The 25-year-old is the county's leading wicket-taker so far this season with 36 victims at an average of 18.36.

Glover, 22, who made his county debut last year, returned career best figures of 4-76 against Hampshire in May.

The signings are a coup for the Welsh county as they try to improve on this year's poor season which has seen them win only two County Championship matches so far.

Glamorgan have not been helped by early season injury to James Harris, who is currently on England Lions duty, and a broken ankle for Graham Wagg, who missed three months of the season.

"Huw's had a fantastic season, especially after the frustrations of last year [with a back injury]," said Matthew Mott, Glamorgan's head of elite performance.

"He's consistently one of the better bowlers on the county circuit, a fantastic pro who is committed to Glamorgan, so this is a great boost for the club.

On Glover Mott said: "John's emerged this year and bowled well consistently.

"He's got a great temperament and his match-winning score at Northampton showed off his all round skills.

"Although he's still inexperienced, he seems to get better with every game he plays.

"The club continues to finalise its squad line up for the 2013 season, but securing these two players is a real boost for the team.

"We believe both Huw and John have a big part to play in our future."
