The Cricket (watching) group is simply a loose association of people who like watching live cricket. The aim is to see a range of matches at county, local and perhaps even international levels. This will include Exmouth (local and occasionally county), Sidmouth (county) and Taunton (county and occasionally international). There could even be trips further afield if members want – and if international, can afford!
Members will have each other’s contact details and can suggest visits to particular games of interest. Those going on the day can arrange car-shares and tickets as required. Members will also be provided with a list of local, county and international matches for the coming season.
2019 fixtures for Somerset, Devon and the Sidmouth ground can be found on the right. Fixtures for Exmouth CC can be seen by following this link: https://exmouth.play-cricket.com/website
To start with I’m going to suggest the following:
Sunday 7th April, 3rd day of Somerset vs Kent (County Championship) Taunton
Friday 19th April, Somerset vs Kent (50 overs), Taunton
Sunday 5th May, Somerset vs Hampshire (50 overs), Taunton
Sunday 30th June, 1st day of Somerset vs Hampshire (County Championship) Taunton
Saturday 20th July, 3rd day of England vs Australia (Women’s Test Match) Taunton
Saturday 10th August, Western Storm vs Lancs Thunder (KSL) and Somerset vs Kent (T20) double-header
Tuesday 10th September, 1st day of Somerset vs Yorkshire (County Championship) Taunton
County championship match, Women’s Test match and 50-over tickets can be purchased the day before (allowing for weather) but the T20 match tickets will need to purchased well in advance (in fact, as soon as possible).
