Burnham-On-Sea cricketers pick up tips from England star

Two cricketers from Burnham-On-Sea took part in a special training session with England and Somerset star Marcus Trescothick this week.

Captain of Burnham-On-Sea Cricket club, Pete Harris and young opening bowler Mike Green took part in a session called 'How to bat like a T20 Star' with Marcus and Somerset Coach Pete Sanderson.

Pete's wife, Hannah, had entered him into a competition to win the opportunity along with some employees of Friends Life.

The session focussed on how Marcus approaches a T20 innings and then allowed the participants to face the bowling machines themselves.

"At the end, Marcus also allowed the participants to bowl at him. The session obviously put Marcus in good form as over the next two days he achieved the 50th century of his career!" Pete told

"Marcus was also generous enough to sign a Burnham Cricket Club shirt which will be raffled at a future social function. The session proved a real insight into the preparation and mindset of an international cricketer before a big competition."
