SOMERSET County Cricket Club's reimagined Legends Wall is beginning to take shape after it was announced that Ian Botham has become the latest person to earn a place.

Somerset Members and supporters were recently given the opportunity to have a say on which legends of the Club should be added.

Sir Viv Richards and Marcus Trescothick were the first two and they will now be joined by Lord Botham.

Ian Botham made his Somerset debut as a teenager in 1974 and went on to become one of the biggest names in the sport.

Between 1974 and 1986 he represented Somerset in 172 First Class matches, scoring 8686 runs at an average 36.04 with a top score of 228. He also claimed 489 wickets with a best seven for 61.

As part of the buildup for the club's imminent 150th year celebrations, the Hall of Fame feature will soon be re-imagined and reinstalled at the cricket club.

There will be an invite-only event, which will include the official unveiling of Legends Wall and feature Somerset players past and present on Thursday April 18th.
