One week to go until the action begins!


Our first pre-season friendly takes place in one week’s time!

We take on local rivals Gloucestershire in a three-day friendly at Taunton Vale Sports Club on Monday March 21st and this will be followed by two T20 matches against the same opposition at the same venue on Thursday March 24th.

Change of venue

Our next friendly is a two-day match against Worcestershire which was scheduled to take place at The Cooper Associates County Ground but this has now been moved to Taunton Vale.

Regarding this change in venue Somerset CEO Guy Lavender said: “Due to the extremely wet winter that we have experienced, it was felt by all concerned that this fixture should be moved to Taunton Vale.  It’s important that we are ready for the first home Specsavers County Championship match against Lancashire on May 1st.  In order to achieve this we need to give the outfield every opportunity to recover from the extensive work that has been undertaken over the last few months.”
