It’s a special edition of the Bears PodBlast that has landed this week with Bears spinner Jake Lintott.

Having initially joined the Bears for just the Blast last summer aged 27, Lintott quickly established himself in the Bears XI and won himself a three-year contract that he signed in February.

With eight wickets already in five games of this year’s Blast, Jake talks about his late route into the professional arena and combining life as a pro with his role as Director of Cricket at Queen’s College in Taunton.
