SOMERSET'S first competitive fixture under the new floodlights is due to be televised by Sky Sports.

Essex are the visitors for a day/night Royal London One-Day Cup clash on Friday, April 26 - one of five to be listed on the Sky Sports website under their scheduled live fixtures.

The project to install the five floodlights at the Cooper Associates County Ground was completed at the start of the month and testing has been ongoing since then.

Somerset begin their Specsavers County Championship Division One campaign against Kent in Taunton on Friday, April 5.

Those who work in the NHS will be entitled to free entry to the second day's play as part of the club's first ever NHS day - click here for more information.
