THE 2023 Summer was a season to remember for Somerset Women's cricket team.

Despite losing a number of games to the weather, the team lifted the Women’s County T20 title under lights at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

In addition to this, the squad also gained valuable experience of 50-over cricket.

Somerset Pathway coach & Women and Girls lead, Kieran Peters said: "Purely from a cricket perspective there were lots of positives to take from the games that we were able to play.

“Overall, I’m really happy with how things have gone this year. I feel like we’re in a really good place at the moment and it’s been a really positive year in terms of how we want to operate. The 50-over element has been important because it has given some of the younger players the opportunity to showcase what they can do when the more experienced players have been unavailable."

He added that it felt incredible to lift the T20 trophy at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

“You can’t underestimate how important that day was, and not just for the players. The day showed that there’s a real appetite for women’s county cricket. The opportunity to play under lights at Taunton is great and everything just fell into place nicely. The weather behaved and we had really good support from the County Club as a whole. That support makes such a difference.”
