GLAMORGAN seam bowlers Huw Waters and John Glover, both from Cwmbran, have signed new contracts to keep them with the Welsh county until the end of the 2014 season.
Medium-pacer Waters played for Usk Cricket Club with the Monmouth School student making his Glamorgan debut in 2005.
The 25-year-old returned to action this year after missing most of the 2011 season with a serious back injury.
And Waters has been in impressive form this campaign, particularly in the LV County Championship, recording a career-best 7-53 against Hampshire during the narrow two-wicket defeat in April at the Swalec Stadium.
Speaking about his decision to renew his contract, Glamorgan's head of elite performance Matthew Mott said: "Huw’s had a fantastic season, especially after the frustrations of last year.
"He’s consistently one of the better bowlers on the county circuit, a fantastic pro who is committed to Glamorgan, so this is a great boost for the club."
Former Llantarnam School pupil Glover made his first-class debut for Durham MCCU in 2008 while studying at the university.
The following summer he took 5-38 against Durham which earned him a trial and a subsequent place on Glamorgan’s playing staff.
The 22-year-old Glover returned career best figures of 4-76 in the 31-run defeat to Hampshire at Southampton at the end of May and then played an important part in Glamorgan’s exciting three-wicket championship victory away at Northamptonshire, hitting 21 runs off 17 balls.
Mott said Glover is a player to watch out for: "John’s emerged this year and bowled well consistently.
"He’s got a great temperament and his match-winning score at Northampton showed off his all round skills.
"Although he’s still inexperienced, he seems to get better with every game he plays."
Mott added: "The club continues to finalise its squad line-up for the 2013 season, but securing these two players is a real boost for the team. "We believe both Huw and John have a big part to play in our future."
