Somerset Second XI return to Bath
Somerset County Cricket Club will be returning to Bath in June!
The Second XI will be taking on their Hampshire counterparts in a 50-over friendly at Bath Cricket Club, North Parade on Monday June 12th.
Fixtures involving Somerset CCC at Bath have been an important part of the Club’s history for over 100 years with the first ever Bath Cricket Festival taking place in 1897. As part of that event Somerset CCC hosted The Gentlemen of Philadelphia at The Recreation Ground. Despite 66 from Richard Palairet the match ended in a draw but the tone was set for what would become a cornerstone of Somerset County Cricket Club’s history.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of Bath’s iconic architecture, some of the biggest names in Somerset’s history have taken to the field. The likes of Gimblett, Botham, Richards, Caddick and Trescothick have all excelled within the glorious surroundings of this city that is steeped in such cultural and historical heritage.
