Somerset take on Dorset

Optimism for Somerset Women

 There was disappointment for Somerset Women when they fell to Gloucestershire in their South & West Counties Championship match in mid  August but there is optimism that the result will rapidly be put behind them. The team is back in action on Tuesday 12 September when they travel to the South Coast to take on Dorset at the Dorset CFA’s HQ in Hamworthy, kick-off 7.30pm.


"We always knew that Gloucestershire were going to be the team to beat,” Somerset’s Manager, Julie Bowker, told a few days ago, “but whilst they were a superior side, the scoreline was maybe a little flattering. We had two or three chances early on which if a couple had gone in, it may have been a different story. I was pleased that the players kept going until the end and this gives me cause for optimism when I see that Gloucestershire won by a similar margin when they travelled to Hamworthy at the beginning of August.”


Julie has selected the following squad for the match:-

Amy Blowers                   Bishops Lydeard

Amy Bond                        Bishops Lydeard

Charlie Pettinger             Merriott
