Great great day.
Although London born and bred, my first game I ever attended was as a 10 yr old at the 1983 WC final. I remember being entranced by Viv Richards and the next year I watched Somerset v Lancashire on BBC2 in the John Player League and that was when I decided to support Somerset.
I didn't even know where the place was but I get down there once a season with pals and it's always worth the day out, whatever the weather.
I had the privilege to take my 11 yr old on Saturday, an avid Middlesex fan, who was mightily impressed with the Somerset support and songs and, even better, tonight in the nets after colts practice wanted to 'sweep like Tom Banton'.
Really hope this team can go and win more.
