1 – Career Best for Lewis
2023 was certainly a year to remember for Lewis Gregory.
Not only did he captain Somerset to Vitality Blast glory, he also claimed career-best First Class figures of seven for 84 at Nottinghamshire.
2 – Revenge is Sweet for Craig
After losing to Hampshire Hawks in the semi-final of the 2022 Blast, Somerset were looking for revenge when the two sides clashed at the Cooper Associates County Ground in May.
Craig Overton starred for the home side by claiming three for eight as the Champions were bowled out for their lowest T20 total as Somerset claimed a stunning eight wicket victory with 63 balls to spare.
The big all rounder also claimed four catches.
3 – Six for Matt
Matt Henry’s spell at Somerset was highly impressive.
He was an integral element of our Vitality Blast success and was also outstanding in red-ball cricket.
He claimed 32 County Championship wickets with a best of six for 59 against Nottinghamshire at the Cooper Associates County Ground.
4 – Ben Blows Middlesex Away
Ben Green had a hugely successful Vitality Blast campaign, finishing with 30 wickets at an average of just 16.66.
One of his many standout performances came in the nine-wicket demolition of Middlesex at Taunton when he claimed four for 20.
5 – Jack’s Still Got It
2023 was Jack Brooks’ final year in a Somerset shirt.
The Headband Warrior became a genuine fan favourite during his time with the Club, and he claimed five for 56 against Hampshire in September.
It was a fitting farewell for the wholehearted seamer.
