The appointment of all-rounder Taylor follows his release by Leicestershire at the end of this season, having scored 1,073 first-class runs at an average of 21.03, also claiming 72 wickets at an average of 39.18.
With no Scotland matches during the summer to prevent his involvement with Norfolk, Brown is pleased with the signing, which brings an end to Garry Park’s three years with the county, when he scored 1,065 runs at an average of 36.72 in 18 Championship matches.
“We’ve been talking to Rob pretty much since the start of October as we had to make a decision on whether to stick with Garry, who has been a loyal servant, but we’ve decided to go in a different direction,” Brown continued.
“Garry’s a superb lad, he contributed more in the longer format than the shorter, but off the field as a bloke he is very popular. With Rob, certainly in the one-day game, his bowling skills is where he has been most prominent for Leicestershire and Scotland.
“We’re hoping he can add to our existing bowling attack and bring that aggressive bowling style to the team.”
