Glamorgan have signed former Surrey batsman Stewart Walters, the player moving in the opposite direction to Tom Maynard and signing a two-year contract.

He will join up with his new team-mates during a pre-season tour of South Africa. Walters, 27, played for Surrey between 2006 and 2010, captaining the county in 2009.

"We are delighted Stewart has joined Glamorgan, he is a talented and experienced cricketer, who can achieve his undoubted potential here in Wales," chief executive Colin Metson said.

"He comes highly recommended from a number of strong sources.  He will strengthen the batting in both formats of the game and add to both the fielding unit and professionalism at the club."

Stewart added: "I appreciate Glamorgan giving me this second chance to play county cricket and look forward to working with the new captain, Alviro Petersen, and coach, Matthew Mott.

"I always enjoyed the atmosphere when playing in Wales and believe the squad is close to winning trophies in the near future," he added.

Walters, who was born in Australia, has played 34 first-class matches, 45 one-day games and 33 Twenty20 matches, all of the coming for Surrey having graduated through age-group cricket with Western Australia but never representing their first team.
