On Somerset's website there's a chance to nominate the club's greatest-ever team. It's the all-rounder slot this week, so the winner may be predictable!

Bill Alley was a feisty Strine. Wasn't he about 70 before he finally packed away his pads ?
Aged 49 in 1968. He could probably have continued in one-day cricket for a while. Very steady medium-pacer, and snapped up gully catches with minimum fuss.

Bill used to have an artificial "confrontation" with Fred Trueman now and then!
