Good to see that Dom has appeared and has replaced the Meerkat in the side. Shame we couldn't get them both in but a good decision I think.

Hampshire A-Head

Eddie Byrom isn`t being given an outing with Somerset Seconds against Glamorgan Seconds at Taunton Vale today, so it look as though he may not be fit enough yet to be considered for tomorrow`s championship match with Hampshire.

Dom Bess, who took wickets and scored runs against Surrey Seconds on Tuesday, isn`t included either, so he may be preparing in the nets at the County Ground.

Hampshire are giving late tests to wicket-keeper Lewis McManus and Liam Dawson, both of whom suffered thumb injuries against Notts at the weekend.

One of their `finds` from last season, all-rounder Ian Holland made his return from injury for Hampshire Seconds this week but didn`t bowl, while Italy ODI international Gareth Berg was also back in action.

Although born in South Africa, Gareth Berg qualifies for Italy through his parents and has played for them in T20s since 2011

Squad for the Hampshire game. Davey faces a fitness test.

Tom Abell (c), George Bartlett, Eddie Byrom, Josh Davey, Steve Davies, Lewis Gregory, Tim Groenewald, James Hildreth, Jack Leach, Craig Overton, Matt Renshaw, Paul van Meekeren.

The Somerset County Gazette has a free entry voucher to any one of the four days as part of Somerset Day celebrations. Looks to be as simple as cutting it out and taking it to the gate. Applies to the Hampshire game only.

Dont tell Hampshire fans that. At £18 on gate could cost the club £100 or even £150 in lost ticket sales!

No Dom in the squad. Not in 2s either today, fishy!?

Any news on Dawson?

Seems a little odd to me naming the squad with all our injuries and the seconds playing today where someone may shine and warrant late consideration. Also Bess not involved in either the squad or the seconds - injured?

Byrom's back quickly, and with no fitness test apparently...

Very disappointing if Dom is really not in the squad.

Then again, the website has form for getting this sort of stuff wrong - remember they didn't even have the correct starting XI listed at Old Trafford (even though Beeb, Cricinfo etc did have the correct information). There are also only twelve names listed - do we usually name only 12 in the squad?

Can't see Davey being worth the risk if his fitness is sufficiently in doubt as to merit a test of it.

Maybe just maybe the squad isnt concrete.....

Several times in past years players not named in the squad have made the match day XI.

I would be most unsurprised if the team see's Eddie in for Marcus & Dom in for Paul, lets see at 10.30am.

Liam Dawson not fit for Hampshire, but `keeper Lewis McManus, who injured a thumb at Trent Bridge, is in their squad, as is Mason Crane and Gareth Berg.

All a bit odd re Dom Bess.

Any news re Jamie Overton’s injury/recovery ?

Jamie is fighting fit and will be fully involved in the 50 over campaign, this in spite of Mr Seymour having already binned him off for the season.....

Out of curiosity where do you get your info on Jamie? Or this is another case of something horrible happening if you spill the beans

Overton, J has another sick note I am led to believe. Not fit yet anyway. And if he were, would he be risked to play?



A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

Any proof Tom Seymour or just another case where you are looking for a response?

Also, WSM fan surely Jamie will have to prove his fitness in the 2nds before he is considered for first team selection in 50 over competition. Don’t want to be rushing him back at the risk of him breaking down again.

Take it or leave it Cleavo, and if I were "looking for a response" I got one from you didn't I?

Overton, J "breaking down again", where's your faith Cleavo? People tell me he is going to be a World beater!

Anyway... Another vague weather forecast for this weekend, band of rain about 5pm tomorrow might not amount to much, then showers possible sat and sun.

Simple question to your first post really Tom, which I got no answer to. Any proof? Reliable source?

Never mind all irrelevant really as club physio and management will make their own assessment.

The “breaking down again” comment was some words of caution from myself given Jamie’s injury and fitness record.

Anyway back on thread here’s hoping for a good 4 days v Kolpakshire/South Africa B weather permitting before the first break for white ball cricket.
