I am really excited to have joined the Somerset Cricket Foundation. I have been playing cricket in the county for the last 6 years and I can see the great work they are doing throughout Somerset, and I can’t wait to get involved. I look forward to getting out and meeting clubs and volunteers throughout the county and help in any way I can.
