Jason hoping supporters will join the team in Abu Dhabi

Somerset Head Coach, Jason Kerr is looking forward to the team’s pre-season tour of Abu Dhabi and is hoping that as many supporters as possible will be joining the team in the UAE.

“The Club are running an official supporters’ trip and it would be great to see a lot of Somerset Members and fans over there.

“It’s not often that you get to see Somerset play somewhere like Abu Dhabi, so it will certainly be a trip to remember. It will very much be a working tour for us and the boys will be put through their paces by the coaches. In early March it’s all about getting the players out on the grass.

“We used the marquee last year which certainly enabled us to get out on the green stuff early even in the snow. Unfortunately, the poor weather meant that we couldn’t actually get any competitive game-time under our belts before the season started.

“This trip means that we will be able to train outside and also play matches against some of the other First Class counties. It would be great to see as many Somerset Members as possible in Abu Dhabi in March.”

Somerset County Cricket Club have teamed up with Sporta Tours to give Somerset Members and supporters the chance to see the team in action in Abu Dhabi.

The Official Supporters’ tour is from March 14th to March 21st and will give you the chance to see the players in pre-season action as well as giving you the chance to experience cricket in the beautiful surroundings of Abu Dhabi.

Somerset are currently scheduled to play in two 50-over matches and a three-day match against English First Class counties.+
