THIS is a really difficult column to write because I think we are all struggling to put what happened at the weekend into words!

It was just an incredible day from start to finish.

I wouldn’t say that we knew we were going to win because that’s not true, but we were always confident going into the game.

There is an amazing buzz around the camp at the moment and we are confident that we can beat anyone on our day.

We’ve got players in great form and there’s a really good mix of young players and more experienced guys.

The bowling unit as a whole was outstanding again on Saturday; everyone did their bit with the ball and in the field.

To limit a side like Hampshire to less than 250 on that pitch was a brilliant effort.

JD [Josh Davey] bowled really well at the start and I was made up for Jamie [Overton] – he was almost unplayable and to see him pick up the man of the match award was great.

It’s been tough for him to be away from the group recently, but he certainly came back with a bang!

The way that Bants [Tom Banton] and Azhar [Ali] went about the chase was first class.

A lot has been written about Tom in the last few weeks, but he’s not let that affect him at all; he just does what he does, and he does it brilliantly.

We’ve got to mention Hildy too... I will never forget the atmosphere on the balcony when he hit the winning runs.

To win the last Lord’s final is something very special and it is something that will bond us all for life.

I’m so happy for people like Jason [Kerr] and Sarge [Andy Hurry]; you can tell just what it meant to them and they have experienced the lows of losing in finals, so it was great to be able to share the win with them.

It’s great for Tregs [Peter Trego] too and he was absolutely buzzing, as was everyone else.

Seeing Abes [Tom Abell] lift that trophy was something that we’ve worked so hard for and I’m not sure it’s sunk in yet.

Most of all I have to mention the members and supporters, as the support we had was unbelievable.

There were thousands of Somerset fans there and they took over Lord’s; they didn’t stop singing and cheering.

To be able to win this for them and share it with them was something very special.

It’s a day that we will remember forever.
