Additional pre-season fixture announced plus Second XI fixtures revealed
Somerset County Cricket Club can today announce that we will be playing an additional pre-season match later this month.
We will welcome Worcestershire to The Cooper Associates County Ground for a two-day match, starting on March 18th.
Following the announcement of the fixture, Somerset CCC Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “When it became apparent that we would be unable to facilitate the Combined National Counties fixture, we made it clear that we would be looking to schedule an alternative pre-season game.
“It is important that the players experience competitive matches against quality opposition in the build up to the start of the new season and I would like to thank Worcestershire County Cricket Club for agreeing to be our opposition over the course of the two days. I am sure that it is a fixture that will be beneficial to both sets of players and coaches.”
We are now also able to reveal this season’s Second XI fixtures.
Somerset will begin their Second XI Championship campaign with a match against Glamorgan at Taunton Vale on Tuesday April 6th.
This will be followed six days later by a trip to Portland Road to take on Warwickshire.
The Second XI T20 competition will begin with an away match against Worcestershire on May 31st.
