1 Somerset v Gloucestershire - 18 June 2017
One ladies team was entered into this event (O40+) which took place on a very, very hot day at the University of Bath. Glos ladies came away victorious, winning 3-0. However, it was a struggle to get enough interest and with only 10 players, Somerset helped out by providing an additional player (who scored one of the goals). The other 2 goal scorers were Tracey Newman – Badgers and Sara Sleeman – Lydney.
Thanks to Sarah McDonald for taking over the organising of the available players a week ahead of the event and Laura Bucknell for being Captain on the pitch.
