Jack Russell signs new contract
Mark Alleyne, Gloucestershire's player-coach, explained the decision to offer Russell the new deal. "Jack is still the best in the business, is our best option for wicketkeeper-batsman and deserves another year," he said. "His enthusiasm is as strong as ever - and adding that to his undoubted ability means he will continue to make a huge contribution to the team. I am very pleased that he will be playing for us next year."
