Somerset Academy player Ben Green signed a three year professional contract with the Club at the end of 2016.
Ben progressed through the Devon age group system, and has been a regular in the Somerset 2nd XI for the past two seasons and made his First XI debut for Somerset in a NatWest T20 Blast fixture at Hampshire in 2016.
The all-rounder has also represented England at Under 15, Under 17 and Under 19 level. Ben, who attended Exeter School and plays his cricket for Exeter CC, is a genuine all round cricketer who has scored heavily in Devon men’s and junior cricket.
He spent two years on the Devon EPP before joining the Somerset Academy in the autumn of 2013.
Ben was selected onto the England Development Pathway based at the National Performance Centre during 2013-14 and made his Somerset 2nd XI debut in 2014 claiming three for 18.
Sadly Ben missed much of the 2017 season through injury.
Ben enjoyed a very successful season with the Second XI in 2018, going on to make his List A and Championship debuts later in the summer.
In 2020 Ben replaced George Bartlett as a concussion substitute in the second innings of the Bob Willis Trophy match against Glamorgan, scoring his maiden First Class half century.
Ben went on to be appointed captain of the Royal London Cup team for the 2021 season and made strides in all three formats for Somerset. He has made match-winning contributions on several occasions, his most notable a blistering 35 off 18 balls to see Somerset into the Vitality Blast final last summer.
