Royal London One-Day Cup trophy spends the day in Taunton
The Royal London One-Day Cup Trophy spent the day in Taunton today.
The trophy began its tour of the town at the County Ground where Keith Parsons (who was the man of the match when Somerset last won the 50 over competition in 2001) delivered it to the Centre of Excellence where a group of 10 to 12 year olds were taking part in a Somerset Cricket Board Summer Cricket Academy.
Following this Steffan Jones, who took the final wicket in the 2001 cup final, took the trophy to King’s College, Taunton where it was on display at their cricket festival. There were junior teams from a number of the First Class Counties at the festival as well as teams from Cornwall, California, South Africa and the ICC Academy.
The Royal London One-Day Cup then headed to Taunton Vale Sports Club where it was on display during our 2nd XI match against Essex.
