Somerset players get their kit off for a good cause
Cricketers in the County could be set to benefit from an idea that Club Captain Marcus Trescothick has come up with.
We have a large amount of cricket kit to give away including shirts, trousers, bags, spikes, pads and gloves courtesy of the Somerset players.
The kit will be given away to a Somerset Cricket Board affiliated club who can demonstrate a need for it.
On his initiative Marcus said “As professional cricketers we are very fortunate to receive plenty of kit to play in. I have asked my team mates at Somerset to pass any unused or unwanted kit that is in good condition to me so that we can give it to Somerset clubs to get some more use out of it.”
Somerset County Cricket Club and Cricket Board have already distributed three wheelie bin loads of unwanted kit to cricket charity Lords Taverners SOS Kit Aid in the last 18 months, winning an inter county competition along the way.
The new initiative will benefit cricketers more locally and we are hopeful of running more give aways as the season progresses.
To register your cricket club’s interest in receiving a kit bundle please contact the Board on 01823 352266.
A panel will decide who receives the kit based on the applications.
