Som­er­set ‘lost’ Daw­son

The Cricket Paper - - FEATURE & VIEWS -

SIX­TEEN years ago, dur­ing the Bath Cricket Fes­ti­val, I told the chief ex­ec­u­tive of Som­er­set that we had a bril­liant ten year old boy in Calne, who would one day play for Eng­land.

I was ig­nored, and that boy joined Hamp­shire. Now, as Liam Daw­son gets his first Test cap, I feel vin­di­cated – only I wish that he had been signed by Som­er­set.
