Abu Dhabi T20 Counties Super: Archie Vaughan, son of former England captain Michael Vaughan, on Tuesday signed his first professional deal with Somerset Cricket Club. The deal will begin on November 1 and will go through 2025 and 2026. The 18-year-old top-order batter and off-spinner has been part of the Somerset Academy St. Andrews setup at Taunton since 2020 and made his Second XI debut in 2022.

This winter, Archie featured for Somerset in the Abu Dhabi T20 Counties Super Cup, opening the batting in the third-place play-off against Yorkshire where he made 35 from 28 balls in Somerset's three-wicket victory.

"It's something that I've worked extremely hard for and it's something that I've strived for since I was a kid, so to get the opportunity for a club where I've really enjoyed myself over the last few years is an honour,” Archie Vaughan said in a Somerset release.
