CRAIG Overton was the big winner at Somerset County Cricket Club's 'Virtual End of Season Awards' on Wednesday night.

Ongoing coronavirus restrictions meant that the event could not take place as normal, and so it was broadcast online.

Overton, who claimed 30 wickets at an average of 13.43 in six Bob Willis Trophy matches in 2020, was named both Player of the Year and Members' Player of the Year.

The 26-year-old all-rounder had already won the Professional Cricketers' Association (PCA) MVP award for the Bob Willis Trophy, claiming a £2,500 cash prize as the best First-Class performer in English domestic cricket this season.

Overton is also one of two Somerset players to be recognised with an England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) contract for the 2020/21 season.

The ECB selectors have awarded 12 Test central contracts, 12 white-ball central contracts, four increment contracts and three pace bowling development contracts.

Overton retains his pace bowling contract alongside Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire) and Olly Stone (Warwickshire), while Somerset spinner Jack Leach receives an increment contract.

An increment contract is one given to players who are still proving themselves in the international arena.

Dom Bess - who is leaving Somerset for Yorkshire - has also earned an incremental contract, while another ex-Somerset player, Jos Buttler, is one of those to receive a Test central contract and white-ball central contract.

Bess signed off his Somerset career by winning the Player in the Community accolade on Wednesday night, while the other award - the Champagne Moment - went to Tom Lammonby, for his century against Worcestershire at New Road.
