Bermudian Clyde Best’s pioneering achievement as one of the first Black players in the top level of English football have been immortalised at Somerset Cricket Club.

A series of murals were unveiled on Clyde Best Lane last night at the ground where Mr Best first showed his football skills - and also starred with the cricket bat at Cup Match - before joining top English club West Ham United.

The murals will be on display next week when thousands of people head to Somerset for the annual Cup Match Classic.
