Eervol om Roela bij ACC te hebben, dit seizoen.Somerset's Director of Cricket Matt Maynard said “I am extremely pleased that we have been able to sign a player of his class and character.

During his career he has proven himself to be a player of high quality and in recent years he has developed his batting to make himself a very good top order batsman. He is a world class fielder, a leader on the pitch and will bring a great energy to the squad. I have worked with him in the past and I can assure the Members and supporters that this is a great signing for us.”

Van der Merwe said he was looking forward to a return to County Cricket, “It will be good being back in Taunton,” he said. “Making it through to the Champions League semi-final was great and for me to be coming back to Somerset to contribute in all forms of the game is awesome. I enjoyed my time in Taunton and I am really looking forward to working with Matt Maynard again. I really enjoyed working with him at St Lucia Zouks and this is an exciting time for me. Whenever you sign for a team you want to help them win trophies and I hope that I can contribute to that in Taunton. The crowd is always really good and very supportive and I can’t wait to play in front of them again.”
