2020 India Tour
The Somerset Boys U15 County Age Group have been touring overseas for the last three years. Previously the team have toured to Sri Lanka but this year the boys will be travelling to India for the first time. The tour, which takes place in February 2020, will provide players with the opportunity to play cricket and develop cricketing skills in an overseas environment and share social and cultural experiences.
The players will partake in a specific winter training programme to help prepare them for the challenges in India and develop new facets to their game in order to have success in very different conditions to those they are used to. Players are also encouraged to develop their business and social skills by taking responsibility in helping to raise funds for the tour.
Our significant thanks go to the following supporters of the tour:
- The Clowance Charitable Trust
- Somerset County Cricket Club
- Lions Sports Travel
