Ahead of the game, Somerset Pathway Coach & Women and Girls Lead, Kieran Peters said: “It’s exciting to get the T20s underway this weekend. Not only will it be competitive cricket, but this competition leads to a national final and that should provide some extra motivation for all the players.

“We don’t know a huge amount about Hampshire or Oxfordshire, so the most important thing will be for us to be really clear about how we will approach the different stages of each game across all three skills and make sure that we execute as well as we can.

“For Lorraine to reach 100 games for Somerset is an unbelievable milestone. It demonstrates how well she ahs consistently performed over many years. Every time I’ve seen her play she’s always impacted games in a strong way, and one of the things that’s been very evident since I’ve been involved with the squad is how much gives back off the field to the younger girls as well.”


Somerset Women are next in T20 action on Sunday June 16th when we take on Wales and Gloucestershire. The venue for these fixtures will be confirmed shortly.
