Hi folks.

Apologies for invading your forum!

Some of you may be aware that Women's County Cricket Day takes place on 6th May. With the distinct reduction in weekend (and Bank Holiday) county cricket this season, it seemed like a good opportunity to encourage county members and supporters all over the country to go and watch their women's team and show your support!

Somerset play at home to Durham that day at Taunton Vale. It's a 50-over game in the Royal London One-Day Cup (or County Championship, if you prefer). 11 am start. Admission is free!

If you can't get to the match that day, then Somerset have the following home fixtures throughout May and June:

50 overs

Sunday 5th May v Wales (Taunton Vale)
Monday 6th May v Durham (Taunton Vale)
Sunday 2nd June v Devon (Taunton Vale)

T20

Sunday 9th June v Essex (10.30) and Taunton (4.30) - Taunton School
Sunday 23rd June v Scotland (10.30) and Devon (4.30) - Taunton Deane CC

Even if I'm not actually a Somerset supporter...? (Sm6)

Some would argue that a few of our regular posters don't seem to be Somerset supporters...

Welcome to Grockles TRM. You are not the first avowed non-Somerset-supporter to venture here, many of whom survive.
Many thanks for your announcement of the ladies' county programme which might otherwise have passed some of us by. I would recommend women's cricket to any true lover of the game, and anyone intending to watch cricket at Taunton Vale - a magnificently equipped club ground with no pretensions to first-class amenities - to take (as a minimum) a folding chair with them.

Not a requirement TRM.

We are an independent Somerset cricket site first and foremost. Anything Somerset related and lots of things not have passed through the portals and your stuff was more relevant than quite a lot.

We do have many supporters online but it's never been a necessary qualification.

Your all very kind!

I'm actually a Worcs supporter, but would claim Somerset as a 'soft spot' - numerous holidays in the West Country, and born in 68, so Ian Terrence Botham was a huge hero during my formative years.

Been following England's women for a few years - first time I watched them was actually at Taunton in the 2009 World T20 - I steadily went pink in the Trescothick Stand one Sunday afternoon...

A few of us felt the county game deserved a bit of promotion so we've cobbled this little campaign together 'Heath Robinson' style to see how far we get. Some great support from some counties so far (Somerset most definitely included) and it has definitely exceeded our expectations, but as far as translating into spectators at games goes, our ambitions are very modest. If anyone fancies watching Somerset on 6th My at the Vale then please go along - I hope you enjoy it and would be very interested in feedback afterwards.
