SOMERSET supporters were out in force to welcome home their Lord's heroes in the Friday afternoon sunshine.

The Royal London One-Day Cup celebration event took place in the St James Street car park at the Cooper Associates County Ground – due to the ground being prepared for hosting three Cricket World Cup matches – and fans of all ages came along to see the trophy, take photos and collect autographs.

The playing squad greeted them, with captain Tom Abell lifting the silverware to rapturous applause, and the players then mingled with the fans.

Check out our photo gallery from the event above, with more pictures to be published in this Thursday's County Gazette.
