Kings in Waiting: Somerset's Quest to Win the County Championship by Thomas Blow

Kings in Waiting: Somerset's Quest to Win the County Championship by Thomas Blow

Format: Hardback 256 pages, Includes colour picture section

Publisher: Pitch Publishing Ltd

Imprint: Pitch Publishing Ltd

ISBN: 9781785318306

Published: 29 Mar 2021

Kings in Waiting is the story of how Somerset failed to win their maiden Championship title despite finishing second five times during the 2010s. Since they finished bottom of the table in 2006, Somerset have enjoyed and endured the most exciting period in their history. Following their bottom-of-the-table finish, they hired Justin Langer as their captain and he transformed them into one of the most competitive teams in the land.

He departed in 2009, although the good work he had done alongside his successor Marcus Trescothick was expected to result in trophies. But they somehow failed to deliver, remarkably finishing as runners-up in eight tournaments between 2009 and 2012. This led to them being described as the bridesmaids of English cricket.

After a few quiet years, a new team began to emerge under Chris Rogers, one full of youth and promise. He guided them to second in 2016 and his successor Tom Abell finally managed to win a trophy in 2019. Yet the all-important Championship title remains absent from their cabinet.
