SOMERSET have picked up another new signing ahead of the Metro Bank One Day Cup.

The club has secured the services of Lancashire all-rounder Danny Lamb on loan.

The 27-year-old will join the Club for the competitions group stage matches.

Somerset’s One Day Cup Coach, Paul Tweddle said: “It’s important to have a good blend of players who have experience within the format alongside the younger players in the squad. Danny helps us to provide that balance. He’s got a good record in 50-over cricket and helped Lancashire to the final last year.

“After Ben Green’s selection in The Hundred and recent injuries, Danny’s signing adds depth and quality to us as a team.”

Danny is the product of the Lancashire Academy and has been a part of the First XI squad at Emirates Old Trafford since 2017.

Ahead of his first game for Somerset, Lamb added: “I’m looking forward to this new opportunity and to contributing to the team both on and off the field.

"I’ve seen how much white-ball cricket is valued in Taunton and I’m looking forward to experiencing that as part of the home team.”
