Essex trio put pen to paper

Essex County Cricket Club have confirmed that three of their promising prospects have put pen to paper on contract extensions with the club.

Wicketkeeper/batsman, Michael Pepper, along with Academy graduate, Josh Rymell, and Dutch international, Shane Snater, have all extended their stay at The Cloudfm County Ground.

Speaking to, Essex Head Coach, Anthony McGrath, enthused: “All of these guys are talented cricketers so it’s great they’ll be here for another year.

“Michael has always performed well when called upon and he has a great role model in Adam Wheater to learn from. Hopefully, he can crack on in 2021 and really stake his claim for a place in the First Team.

“Josh has been in and around the First Team for a year or so now and is a great prospect for the future. He’s come through the Essex Academy and is a talented batsman, and everybody at the Club is excited to see how he develops.

“Shane is a trusted and reliable player. Although he’s not always found game time easy to come by, he’s always put in a shift whenever he’s played and he’s another who I hope really pushes on next year.”
