Rob Turner, the wicketkeeper, has signed a new one-year contract with Somerset.

Turner, who turns 37 later this month, joined Somerset in 1991 after having captained both Cambridge and British Universities.

His opportunities at Somerset were initially limited as Neil Burns was the first-team wicketkeeper, but a patient Turner bided his time. And when the chance came, he took it. In 1994 he won his county cap, and has been a regular ever since. The last County Championship match he missed for them was in 1998, before the advent of two-division domestic cricket.

"I am delighted to have agreed a new deal," he said "and [I] will be looking to continue my playing career with Somerset for the foreseeable future." In addition to his 659 dismissals for Somerset, which places him fourth on their all-time list, Turner has so far scored more than 9,000 first-class runs, and passed 1000 in the 1997 and 1999 seasons.
