Chris Schofield Seals New Deal At Surrey

Leg-spinner Chris Schofield, who played for England in the ICC World Twenty20, has signed a new two-year contract with Surrey.

Schofield, 28, moved to Surrey in 2006 from minor county Suffolk having previously played for Lancashire.

Schofield said: “I’m really pleased that things are back on track for me now.

"I have had a lot of uncertain times in my life when I wasn’t sure where my cricket was headed but since I joined Surrey last year things have moved forward for me.

“I love playing cricket here and really look forward to the next couple of years where I hope to help Surrey win some more trophies.”

Surrey cricket manager Alan Butcher added: “Chris has fully repaid the gamble we took in offering him a contract last year.

"His performance in 2007 has convinced me that there is yet more to come in the Chris Schofield fairy tale and I am therefore delighted that we have secured his services for a further two years.”
