Play your part in the next chapter of our history!

Somerset County Cricket Club has a long and successful tradition of nurturing the best local talent from across the South West region and giving them the opportunity to make it in the First XI.

Throughout our history Somerset County Cricket Club has taken pride in the number of home-grown players who have gone on to have outstanding careers within the sport.

The list of players who have come through the ranks here at the Cooper Associates County Ground is extensive and in recent years the likes of Jos Buttler and Craig Overton have also gone on to represent England. In addition to this, ICC Women’s World Cup winner Anya Shrubsole also graduated from the Somerset Academy.

The secret of the success of this pathway is quite simply the Somerset County Cricket Club Academy and you could be playing a major role in helping to produce the England stars of the future.

We are looking to secure an Academy Partner for the coming seasons and you or your business could help these young cricketers on the road to playing for Somerset County Cricket Club.

As Academy Partner you would receive:

  • High profile branding on the Academy training kit
  • Access to hospitality packages at Somerset County Cricket Club
  • Access to branding packages at Somerset county Cricket Club
  • Publicity in regular (at least eight) news stories on the SCCC website during the season
  • Potential to access over 6500 Members, over 90,000 opted in supporters via email, 237,000 Facebook followers and 74,000 Twitter followers

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Somerset Academy is to develop entertaining and independent-thinking cricketers to play for both Somerset and England.  The overriding goal is to provide Somerset CCC with future cricketers to succeed at First Team level and to then go on to represent their country in the International arena. Players are exposed to holistic development across tactical, technical, mental, physical and lifestyle elements in order to develop the players as broadly as possible.

Our Mission

To play high quality cricket and exceed our Members, spectators and visitors expectations in order to ensure that Somerset County Cricket Club is recognised as an outstanding Cricket Club and venue.

Our Vision

A world-leading talent development programme will have ensured that the majority of the First Team squad are comprised of players either born or schooled in the West Country, combined with the recruitment of a small number of the most talented players from across the world.

Our Values

To succeed on the Somerset Academy our players must adhere to three important values:

  • Commitment
  • Respect
  • Family
