Somerset sign Danny Lamb
Somerset County Cricket Club have today secured the services of Lancashire all-rounder Danny Lamb on loan.
The 27-year-old will join the Club for this summer’s Metro Bank One Day Cup group stage matches.
Danny is the product of the Lancashire Academy and has been a part of the First XI squad at Emirates Old Trafford since 2017.
An important part of Lancashire’s white-ball squads over the last few years, Danny has claimed 28 wickets in his 18 List A matches at an average of 29.92 with a best of five for 30. He has also scored nearly 300 runs in the format at an average 41.71 with a high score of 86 not out.
After welcoming Danny to the Club, Somerset’s Metro Bank 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.”
Ahead of his first game for Somerset, Danny said: “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.”
