Leach can lead Worcs on the Rhodes to suc­cess

The Cricket Paper - - FEATURE -

WORCESTERSHIRE cap­tain Joe Leach has signed an ex­tended three-year con­tract at New Road.

Leach, 26, led his side to the Di­vi­sion Two ti­tle, while claim­ing 69 wick­ets in his first sea­son as skip­per.

Di­rec­tor of cricket Steve Rhodes said: “Joe has been so con­sis­tent with the ball in Cham­pi­onship cricket. To se­cure him for the next three years sends a mes­sage to ev­ery­one.

“We’ve got a lot of our play­ers who are now signed up. The team and the dress­ing room are stick­ing to­gether and they are sign­ing longer deals. Hope­fully, that will help take us to where we want to be.”
