VI and Disability CC shirts launched

As part of the Our Region Rises campaign we will be launching each of this season’s playing shirts at a different landmark.

The VICC and Disabled CC shirts were revealed at The Museum of Somerset today.

The shirts are brought to you in association with Kukri Sports and Eurilait.

The Somerset Visually Impaired Cricket Club was officially formed in 2011, after a successful trial through 2010 ensured that there were enough players interested to create the team.

Somerset Visually Impaired Cricket Club compete in the BCEW National League. The Club competes against eight counties and plays each other county once. The Visually Impaired Cricket Club play their home games at Wombats CC in Bishops Lydeard and matches are played with a larger ball (size of a handball) that makes a sound and the wickets are larger.

Each player much be registered blind or partially sighted. Each player is then placed into one of four sight categories. The team is then made up of different sight categories, with no more than two players from the high partial category.


Somerset Disabled Cricket Club was formed in 1997 and since then has gone from strength to strength.

Thanks to the support of the Somerset Cricket Foundation and through the sheer determination of a number of hardworking individuals the club has become one of the strongest in the Country.

The team have achieved success on a national scale, whilst also managing to provide opportunities for individuals of all ages, abilities and all types of physical and learning impairments.
