Profile

As a young man Jake Seamer wanted to be an actor. He had a personable, if slightly quirky, manner and enunciated as a vicar's son should. But the nearest he got to a stage career was to play the Dame in the annual pantos during his days in the Sudan Political Service. County cricket was his second secret wish. In his school holidays he used regularly to cycle along the narrow country lanes from the vicarage at Shapwick to the county ground in Taunton.
