“The addition of Nigel is a welcoming move for our club. He brings a lot of experience and can help the younger players improve,” said Somerset West Cricket Club chairman Ryno Venter.

“We look forward to him taking many wickets and scoring a lot of runs.”

Somerset West Cricket Club sponsorship

Somerset West Cricket Club have also announced sponsorship from Score Energy Drink and Bashew’s Soft Drinks, via Chill Beverages International. The former will sponsor senior cricket and the latter junior.

“We are excited to partner with these brands and are very grateful for their support. We know that sponsorship for community club cricket is not readily available,” added Venter.

“This sponsorship will help grow our club in both the junior and senior sections, with the aim to make cricket more accessible to everybody – and grow a healthy, competitive environment.”

Somerset Cricket Club have been promoted to the WPCA first division B after finishing in second position in the 2021-22 first division C.

They are the reigning Ama20 Competition first division C champions – and have retained captain Larry Morkel and vice-captain Jan Rademan.
