Kerr pens Somerset extension
Head coach Jason Kerr says he's "incredibly excited" after signing a new contract to tie him to Somerset until 2022.
The 45-year-old has penned a new deal after his side only narrowly missed out on winning the County Championship for the first time in their history this year when they drew their rain-hit title decider against Essex.
Kerr did oversee success in the One-Day Cup at Lord's in an overall impressive campaign and he says he's looking forward to the future after committing for another three years.
"I'm incredibly excited," he told the Somerset website. "I have absolute belief in the squad and the support staff. We've laid some really strong foundations over the past two years."
Director of cricket Andy Hurry said Kerr has had a big impact in recent years.
He added: "This extension is a recognition of everything that Jason has achieved since becoming head coach and it is a justified reward for his outstanding work.
"Under his guidance, the club has developed both on the field and off it. The results are clear to see. We have a trophy in the cabinet and could have so easily doubled that tally.
"His passion for this club and the game as a whole is clear for all to see, and that kind of desire for success is something which will drive this club forward over the next few years."
