KP is giving a masterclass for Somerset youngsters at Wellington School on 5 June

Controversial England batsman Kevin Pietersen may not be playing in the Ashes this summer, but he is coming to Somerset.

The Ashes legend will take part in a special masterclass at the Princess Royal Sports Centre at Wellington School on Friday 5 June.

This is a unique opportunity to work with a world-class player and is open to boys and girls from all local schools and clubs.

Chidlren from years 5, 6, 7 and 8 will be able to take part between 9-10.30am, while youngsters from years 9, 10, 11 and sixth form can join in between 11-12.30pm.

A donation of £45 will be required for these sessions which will all go to the Kevin Pietersen Foundation – KP24. Anyone who donates more than £65 will go into a draw to win the bat Kevin uses on the day.
