Somerset v Gloucestershire: Rivalry Unleashed 2021

August 11th 1879 saw the birth of something very special.

It was on that day at Clifton College that the first ever clash between Somerset and Gloucestershire began.

That day has lead to over 140 years and nearly 300 matches of intense sporting rivalry.

Some of the biggest names in the history of the game have starred for the two sides over the years with the likes of Botham, Richards, Trescothick, Gayle, Grace, Walsh and Muralitharan doing battle, but who will be making history this summer?

In 2021 the two bitter rivals will clash on no fewer than four occasions across 10 days and two formats to establish which county is the best in the West!

After a 13 year wait, the two counties met in First Class cricket last year with Somerset coming out on top by an impressive 314 runs.

There were also two keenly contested Vitality Blast clashes between the two sides.

This year will see the two sides clash again as follows:
