Jim Allenby signs new contract with Glamorgan
JIM Allenby has handed Glamorgan a major boost by signing a new contract which will keep him at the Swalec Stadium until 2017.
The Australian-born all-rounder has been the Welsh county’s leading run-scorer in the four-day and 40-over formats this season.
Allenby revealed earlier this summer that he had been approached by “a couple of clubs”, and his decision to stay is a significant lift for Glamorgan.
He said: “I am extremely happy to commit the next four years of my playing career to Glamorgan and look forward to working with the playing squad and coaching staff to bring success back to this club.”
Glamorgan’s chief executive Alan Hamer added: “We are delighted to have retained Jim’s services for the next four years. He is a key member of our playing squad.
“Today’s announcement re-affirms the club’s determination to become a successful first-class county.
“We remain committed to retaining our best players and to challenge strongly in all forms of the game.”
