Somerset enjoyed the better of their two day contest against Glamorgan at Taunton Vale which eventually ended as a draw just after 5pm on Tuesday.

On day one it was the Somerset bowlers who were prominent but today it was the batsmen who enjoyed successful workouts with  Alex Barrow, Lewis Gregory and Pete Trego in particular scoring good early season runs.

Resuming on 69 for 3 off 19 overs the overnight batsmen Gregory, who began on 24 and Alex Barrow (17*) saw the 100 up in the 30th over of the innings.

Both batsmen flourished in the sunny but cold conditions and Gregory went to his half century with a well timed cover drive off Craig Meschede  in the 33rd over.

The fourth wicket pair took the total onto 129 when Gregory was caught by the wicket-keeper for 66.

New batsman Pete Trego went for his shots from the start while Barrow continued to accumulate his runs, as well as showing the aggressive side to his batting and went to his well deserved 50 to loud applause.

A well timed square drive by Trego brought up the 200 in the 54th over and by lunch Somerset had move onto 212 for 4, by which time Barrow was unbeaten on 64 and Trego not out 49.

Trego went to his half century off 50 balls after which he started to go for his shots. He hit Craig Meschede straight six but eventually the bowler got his revenge when  Trego went for a big drive and was caught for 94.

Without addition to the score of 274 Barrow mistimed a drive off Dean Cosker and was caught at mid on for 79.

James Regan was joined by Tim Groenewald and it was Regan who brought up the 300  with a boundary off the last ball of the 74th over.

Shortly after Groenewald hit a big six over mid wicket Somerset declared on 314 for 7, Groenewald unbeaten on 19 and Regan 17 not out- 184 runs ahead.

By tea Glamorgan had moved onto 21 for 1 off 9 overs, Groenewald claiming the wicket to fall.

The Glamorgan second wicket pair took the score onto 125 when Jamie Overton returned at the top end and met with immediate success when he had Bragg caught by Regan who took the gloves for the second innings.

Shortly after 5pm bad light brought the game to an early end by which time Glamorgan had moved onto 130 for 2.

Afterwards Barrow said: “It has been a very good work out for us and I think that everyone has got something from it. First up out bowlers were good bowling a team out for 130 is always a good sign and we fielded well which was good place for us to start.

“It was great to get outside on the grass again, to get some overs in the legs from the keeping point of view and a couple of dismissals is always nice to get you going. Then batting I had a lot of time out in the middle and put a few runs on the board. Pete Trego came in and played well for 90 odd and Lewis also did well, earlier in the day.”

Talking about the bowlers Baz said: “Jamie Overton looked very quick and when he hits his straps and bowls quick he is right up there so hopefully he will bowl like that all season for us. Tim Groenewald bowled nicely in the first innings same with Lewis and Dibbs and Leachy as well so I think that everybody has got something from this match, which is what we wanted.”

He added: “We put in a good display as a team and for Matt’s first game in charge of things I feel that it has gone very well.”
