SOMERSET star Tom Kohler-Cadmore has looked back on 2023, his first year at the club, with immense pride.

He said he was thrilled to be part of a trophy-winning team so early in his career as a Somerset player.

“Lifting a trophy makes any season special. I knew some of the players when I arrived, but found the spirit among the whole squad to be fantastic," he said.

"It’s great being on the pitch knowing that every team-mate and the entire crowd are willing you to do well. The atmosphere on and off the field was so positive and it was a pleasure to be part of it.”

He added that the success stemmed from a strong squad who all got along well on and off the pitch.

"We had a squad of 15 guys who all knew their individual roles, along with some very talented younger guys. It meant that when we lost the likes of Roelof van der Merwe, Peter Siddle and Lewis Gregory to injury we had the strength in depth to keep winning.

"We won most of our group games comfortably and my favourite match leading up to Finals Day was the quarter-final victory over Notts at Taunton on a tacky pitch that suited them more than us."
