Stephen Harmison Edgebaston 2009

As hoped, Big Steve has decided to stay with the Club signing a four year contract extension.  Despite the large sums involved it comes as a relief, having seen the way that Mattew Hoggards’ Yorkshire career has sadly ended in high profile hostilities.

It underlines Durhams’ different approach to a talented and hugely valuable senior player.  While continuing to add considerable force to the bowling attack at county level,  he will be around to encourage the younger squad members. An inspirational local hero for aspiring young regional cricketers, he will also prove more than an asset in sponsorship negotiations and corporate dealings.  Good for Harmison and good for the North East.

Durhams’ prospects for retaining the Championship title in the coming seasons are also looking good right now.
