SOMERSET’S pace ace Adam Dibble said he is looking forward to the challenge of becoming a regular member of this season’s attack, writes Daniel Milligan.

The 21-year-old right arm quickie featured in a warm up match against Glamorgan and he said it is nice to get some overs under his belt at this early stage of the season.

He added: “It has been going well playing a few pre-season games and it is always nice to hit the ground running.

“There is stiff competition but I think there is a place available in the side which is there to be taken.

“Gemaal {Hussain] is my biggest competition but I think it is definitely good for the side to have competition for places.”

But the former Devon youngster who starred in the second team last season taking an incredible 9-26 against Hampshire told the County Gazette he is struggling with a knee injury picked up in the Glamorgan match.

Dibble will see a specialist this week and he said: “It makes it so much more frustrating to get back into the first team and then get injured.”

The 6ft 4in bowler graduated from Somerset’s Academy and was awarded a contract by the Cidermen in 2009.
