Our tour partner will be Lions Sports Travel, who are vastly experienced in delivering high quality sporting tours specialising in trips to Sri Lanka.​ Somerset Cricket Board Development Manager, Andy Fairbairn explained the reasons behind the tours: “We are constantly striving to improve the experiences that all young players receive in our player pathway and we felt that the timing was right to add an overseas tour to our programme.  Sri Lanka was an obvious location due to conditions that will enable our young players to develop new facets to their games and also experience a culture that is so wonderfully diverse to our own.”

Fundraising efforts for the tour will be taking place over the next five months and any assistance that can be given to help reduce the cost of the tour for players will be gratefully received. There are opportunities for businesses to support the tour in several ways, further infomration is available from Michelle Brooks - michelle.brooks@somersetcricketboard.org
