Profile

Jim Allenby, a solid county performer, made Somerset his third county when he joined them from Glamorgan ahead of the 2015 season, stating that as an allrounder beyond his 30th birthday he needed to be winning trophies. Those ambitions were not immediately met and instead Allenby was unfortunate to become the butt of a section of the Taunton crowd, leading him to be dubbed as one of the most persistently barracked cricketers in the county game.
