A new pavilion has been unveiled at the County Ground in Bristol, home of Gloucestershire County Cricket Club.

The building work has taken 10 months to complete and is part of major works to ensure international cricket continues to be played in the city.

A special opening ceremony was held before the YB40 match against Somerset to mark the club's heritage.

Past players including Jack Russell, Mark Alleyne and Chris Broad attended the game.

England and Wales Cricket Board chairman Giles Clarke was invited to officially open the pavilion.
