Glamorgan Cricket have signed batsman Stewart Walters on a two-year deal and will join the squad prior to the pre season tour to South Africa.
Walters, 27, played for Surrey from 2006 to 2010 and captained the club in late 2009.
Glamorgan’s Managing Director of Cricket, Colin Metson said: “We are delighted Stewart has joined Glamorgan, he is a talented and experienced cricketer, who can achieve his undoubted potential here in Wales.
“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.”
Walters is looking forward to meeting up with the team and says he will relish the opportunity to play for Glamorgan.
Stewart said: “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.
First XI Coach, Matthew Mott added: “With Stewart’s signature, the squad for 2011 is now complete. Along with the new captain, we have, in effect, two new bowlers in Wagg and Shantry and now two new batsmen in O’Shea and Walters.
“There is also an opportunity for existing players who played little last year to make their mark, as well as the younger players, who are now another year older and wiser, to push through.
“I continue to be in touch on a regular basis with the cricketing staff and am looking forward to joining up with the players as soon as my commitments in Australia are complete.”
