Rooting for you to beat Middx and stay up next week

Gulp. So it's come to this -- Champions and Runners-up will be head to head to avoid relegation next week. Just so you know, there'll be at least one Yorkshireman (me) cheering you on to win, and win well, against Middlesex -- even though a draw would guarantee Yorkshire's safety.

You didn't deserve to lose against us in June (see my post on last page of 'The Yorkshire Test'). If that helmet had been two inches to the left on June 11th, we'd now be on 137 points and you'd be on 135. One of us would probably have been relegated, and either way I wouldn't be coming to Taunton again next year.

But if you can win next week, and we get the few points we'd then need to stay ahead of a beaten Middlesex, I'll be able to enjoy your hospitality again in 2018. I'd much rather come to Taunton than go to Lord's!

So good luck guys. (Your team is better than a lot of you grumbling Grockles seem to think!)

Thank you WS55 and yes, some of us think our team is OK. And even if it wasn't, we'd still be cheering the lads on!

I certainly hope WS55 will have reason to visit Taunton next summer. I actually think the "grumbling Grockles" do not constitute a "lot" of us, though they do tend to take up a lot of space on the site.

What's the injury news on Tregs? Could LG play as a batman or has he gone under the knife? Why am listening to S-Club-7?

Last picture I saw of Lewis last week he was wearing a hospital gown so I think Monday will be a wee bit soon for him!

Tregs struggling per Matt but will do anything to play if at all possible.
It will turn so rvdm has to be the replacement, 1st innings runs the priority, win thoughts become live after we match their batting points.....

She could sever the handles from the Middlesex bats in a trice, if that helps, Scrumper.

The most depressing part of the cricket season is when the steward puts the final stamp on the card that all members get for a free scorecard.

We all know it is the final game of the season. (Sm117)

Division two don't depress me, we have been there before and we didn't stay long, anyway we are not there yet.

Come on Somerset you can do us proud.

Lewis has had pins put in his back. They didn't put anything in me but 6 weeks later I'm still working on the wound healing so it is highly unlikely that Mr Gregory.will be playing cricket in the near future.

Needless to say there should be no question of gambling on Pete's fitness for such an important match - there's no way we should pick him, IMO, having seen the level of discomfort that he was in on Friday, unless it was just a cramp or muscle spasm.

Looking for some inspiration today and I find the Women's T20 final highlights on OSN cricket at midday.... the girl's game is getting some worldwide coverage.

Is the Western Storm bowler Dibble related to ex Somerset Adam?

Good luck to all the sides in the final round and within the spirit of the game. Tom, long may you continue as Captain whether we will be feeder division or not. It's the players that matter, not the celebrity of DoC which is a football copy. Middlesex shouldn't have been deducted the 2 points, so we must win well. Hope these crucial games for so late in September don't lead to any more injuries and everyone else can get the time off college or work.

Somerset will pick a starting XI from the following 13 man squad:
Tom Abell (c), Marcus Trescothick, Eddie Byrom, George Bartlett, James Hildreth, Steve Davies (wk), Roelof van der Merwe, Craig Overton, Dom Bess, Jack Leach, Tim Groenewald, Paul van Meekeren, Peter Trego.


Peter Trego is a doubt for the match after picking up an achilles injury on Friday at the Kia Oval.

Pretty clear Tregs is out.
I agree RVDM straight swop at 7.

Per Midx site we have a new signing Joe Leach playing!

The absolutely huge news is no Rayner.
Proper spin options now Sowter & Patel who have 1 championship wicket between them in 2017 (jack & dom 76!)
Part time options of Malan Voges Stirling.

If we can just win that toss & post 250 i cant see how things can go wrong.....
