George Bartlett, a slight middle-order batsman educated at nearby Millfield School, graduated from the Somerset academy and broke into the first team at the end of 2017, before solidifying his spot two seasons later.
Bartlett wrote his name into the record books with 179 for England Under-19s in the Youth Test series against India in Nagpur in 2017. It was the highest score made by an England Under-19 batsman overseas, beating the 170 made by Nasser Hussain in Sri Lanka in 1987.
He was thrown into a relegation fight when he made his Somerset debut in the last month of the season. His maiden Championship hundred came against Lancashire at Old Trafford in 2018, but it was not until 2019 that he nailed down his spot in the first-class side.
He scored Championship hundreds in wins at Trent Bridge and Guildford, while showing flashes of a more expansive game in the One-Day Cup, and was at the non-striker's end as James Hildreth hit the winning runs in the final at Lord's.
