Dennis Breakwell was a slow left-armer who became an allrounder as his career developed. He made his debut for Northamptonshire in 1969 and soon established himself in the first team, but he moved to Somerset in 1973 and was a key part of the side for the remainder of the decade, appearing in two winning Lord's finals. He is the professional coach and groundsman at King's College in Taunton.
