Those of a certain vintage will remember Craig “Buckets” Vertongen a Kiwi who played for both us and Paignton during the early 90s, as well as playing No8 for the Tics.
His son, Jesse, a wicketkeeper batsman, is spending a season over here playing for Taunton CC – he recently opened alongside Tom Abell.
Tomorrow (Monday) though he is travelling down to play in the midweek game for us against Barrow Gurney.
We must thank Evo for organising this and for the Tics legend John Widdicombe for putting him up.
Please come down and support him.
