Somerset Try for Third Time

Having seen their previous two South & West Championship games wiped out through dreadful winds and rains, Somerset U18’s team is hoping their forthcoming trip to Cornwall will herald a start of a more favourable spell of clement weather.

Somerset head off to the Royal Duchy on Saturday 10 February to play the host county at St Blazey FC, kick-off 2.30 pm.

Manager, Graham Clarke, expressed his frustration when www.somersetfa.com caught up with him earlier. “We have now had the two games in succession postponed because of the bad weather. We were due down in Cornwall before Christmas and that was thwarted by the dangerously high winds that weekend and a couple of weeks ago our return fixture against Devon succumbed to the heavy rains. It’s frustrating for the players because they look forward to representing their county and now, all of a sudden, we shall be playing three times in a matter of six weeks.”

Clarke has been able to name a largely unchanged squad for Cornwall game:
