Teenager Tom Lammonby has signed a one-year contract extension with Somerset to run until the end of 2021.

The 19-year-old, whose previous deal was set to expire next year, is yet to make his first-class debut, but played 12 times in the T20 Blast last season.

"This is a proud moment for me and to extend my contract with Somerset is a dream come true," Lammonby said.

"I've really enjoyed my first year and I'm excited to see what the next few years hold."

All-rounder Lammonby, a former England Under-19 captain, scored 88 runs in T20 cricket last season and took eight wickets as he was named as Somerset's young player of the year.

Director of cricket Andy Hurry said: "Tom is an extremely talented cricketer with a very high ceiling who has a very bright future ahead of him.

"He has made some excellent progress over this summer since progressing from the academy last year."
