Somerset Seniors Cricket provides the opportunity for those who, while progressing in years, have lost none of their enthusiasm for the game. We have two Over 50s teams, two over 60s teams, one over 70s team and a 60s/70s Friendly XI. The 1st teams of both the 50’s & 60’s have often reached the latter stages of their National Inter-County Competitions.
Continuing to play cricket at a reasonable standard is not only enjoyable and fulfilling, it provides the opportunity to maintain valued friendships with colleagues as well as opponents alongside whom we have progressed through the age groups. And, of course, there is the added value in having regular exercise – even if some of the knocks and strains can take a little longer to repair these days!
We benefit greatly from the generosity of clubs around Somerset which make their facilities available to us, hosting our matches by preparing good wickets and delivering a high standard of catering. This is a real plus and is much appreciated.
By running more than just one side at each age level we are able to offer games to a broad range of playing abilities and we have seen how even the most seasoned player can develop and improve given the opportunity to keep playing regularly.
We are always pleased to hear from those who may be wondering about the future of their involvement in cricket and warmly welcome those who might consider continuing to participate in the game and to defer ‘hanging up their boots’ for a while longer.
