SOMERSET cricket legend James Hildreth visited the Somerset Disabled Cricket Team at Millfield last week.

He spent a training session with the growing Somerset Disabled Cricket Club to promote the Club and encourage new players to consider joining.

He supported the lead coach from Millfield, Henry Hunt in the delivery of the session to 18 players, from across Somerset, taking them through some batting, bowling and fielding drills. 

The Club are looking for more players to join them, as they venture into pastures new by entering a hardball team into a national league, as well as looking to grow and introduce new players into one of their three teams, Dragons, Super and D40.

James said: “It's amazing to be back at Millfield, it holds so many special memories for me.

"It was brilliant to come down and be with the Somerset Disability Squad and really look to identify talent for the season. It's right at the beginning of their journey going into next season, and at the moment we're trying to find players not just from Somerset, but we've got players coming up from Devon.”

To play for the County team, all players must meet a recognised level of physical or learning disability or hearing impairment.
