Batsman Stewart Walters will remain at Glamorgan until the end of the 2013 season after signing a one-year contract extension.

The Australian right-hander, formerly of Surrey, joined in February 2011 on a two-year deal.

Walters said: "Glamorgan reignited my career last year and it's a great honour to have signed on until at least the end of 2013.

"Last summer... I rediscovered the love of playing cricket."

Walters scored a defiant century in Glamorgan's second innings of their LV=County Championship match against Northamptonshire at Swansea, which helped his new side avoid defeat.

Against Kent at Canterbury as their season ended, the 28-year-old scored 147 to lay the foundation of an eight-wicket victory

He also hit a record-breaking 50 off 19 balls in the Clydesdale Bank 40 match against Lancashire at Colwyn Bay.

He added: "Glamorgan cricket is a great club and a place that allows cricketers to express there talents.

"As a club, we are heading in the right direction and under the leadership of club captain Mark Wallace and vice-captain Jim Allenby I expect us to grow into a force within all forms of the game."
