Top order international cricketer and Protea opening batsman Alviro Petersen has announced a partnership with financial services provider Momentum in support of the Alviro Peterson Foundation.

it’s good to be back at the County Ground! - August 2014

It is always great to be back here at the County Ground and to fell part of the Somerset changing room again.

This is a good time to come back because we are still in with a chance of reaching the last eight of the 50 over one day competition and also lifting the championship title for the first time ever, which would be some feat and Id love to be part of that.
