Right-Handed Batsman, Right-Arm Off-Break Bowler14
George Bartlett, who graduated from the Somerset Academy, signed a one-year contract with the Club in October 2016.
The 19 year old right handed batsman, who also bowls off spin, has played through the Somerset age groups and plays his club cricket for Bridgwater CC.
He made his debut for Somerset 2nd XI in 2013 and since then he has gone onto represent England at Under 19 level and played in the Under 19 World Cup.
George’s highlights of 2016 were scoring a century for England against Sri Lanka in the Under 19 Test Match plus his century for Somerset against Yorkshire 2nd XI.
He also played for Somerset in the finals of both the 2nd XI T20 and 2nd XI Trophy competitions.
During the winter of 2016 George enjoyed prolific time away with the England Young Lions, the highlight being a sublime 179 in a Youth Test against India. That score is the highest by an England U19 batsman overseas, beating Nasser Hussain in 1987.
George is yet to make his Somerset senior debut.
