Glamorgan have agreed new one-year contracts with wicket-keeper/batsman Tom Cullen and spin-bowling all-rounder Owen Morgan.

Cullen, 27, averaged 35 with the bat in nine Championship matches in 2019, hitting four half-centuries.

The Australian-born Cardiff MCCU product kept wicket in seven games when captain Chris Cooke was injured.

Morgan, 25, played in four Championship games, making a top score of 43, and in five T20 Blast fixtures.

Cullen also led Glamorgan's second team to their T20 trophy win, with Morgan playing a leading part.

"It's a great honour to be playing for the county having grown up as a young Welsh lad supporting them, hopefully next year will be a good year and I can contribute to that," Morgan told BBC Sport Wales.

"We exceeded our expectations in red-ball cricket, our overseas player Marnus Labuschagne having a great influence in that, and that'll give us real confidence aiming for promotion next season.

"However our white-ball cricket tailed off, results were not acceptable and we'll be looking to improve on that."

The announcement of the contracts means that Glamorgan have retained all the domestic players who made first-team appearances in 2019, with the exception of Jeremy Lawlor.

Glamorgan have also offered a new deal to star Australian batsman Labuschagne.
