Cricket-mad brothers George and Josh Thomas have both just been awarded a two-year sponsorship deal by QDOS, which forms part of Somerset County Sports.

Both siblings play cricket for King’s College, where they play for their respective county age groups. Fourth Form pupil George is already part of the Somerset Emerging Player Program, with younger brother and current Third Former, Josh, joining him this autumn.

George is a hard hitting right-handed batsman and fast medium bowler, while Josh is a slow left arm bowler who also bats left-handed.

The pair have both played club cricket for Taunton St Andrews for a number of years and this summer, both boys made their debuts in the senior team. George was a member of the Saints side that came runners up in the finals of the ECB Under 15 National Club T20 competition. Josh also played in the Under 15s final and the ECB National Club Under 13s finals day.

The Somerset County Sports award provides each of the players with two bats, two pairs of batting gloves, a pair of batting pads and a carry bag from the latest QDOS range of cricket kit.

Richard Brice, Managing Director of Somerset County Sports, said: “Both George and Josh Thomas are very talented young cricketers who have already made their debuts for the Saints in senior cricket.”

“Somerset County Sports are delighted to be able to offer sponsorship to both boys to assist them to continue with their cricketing development. We hope that this will be the start of a long association with them as they go forward in their playing careers.”
