Worcestershire Sign Spinner Ian Fisher

Worcestershire have signed former Yorkshire and Gloucestershire left-arm spinner Ian Fisher on a one-year contract for the 2009 season.

Worcestershire Director of Cricket, Steve Rhodes, commented, “We have been looking for a left arm spinner, primarily for One Day cricket, for some time. Ian’s experience of the One Day game and specifically Twenty20 cricket can only be of benefit to us in 2009. He will bring a variety to our attack that we missed last year.”

Fisher, 32, said: “I’m looking forward to furthering my career in Worcester and am delighted to be given this opportunity by the County. I’m excited by the prospect of Division One cricket and I’ll be striving to contribute during the 2009 season.”
