2021 County Matches

If you are interested in playing for a Somerset county representative team next season please email and I will send details.

Anyone who is a member of a Club affiliated to SBA can apply to play in county matches. However Cup/Trophy/League matches will be clearly identified on the application form and for these matches, the strongest available team will be selected. Those applying are expected to ask for at least as many away games as home games. Please note that while anyone can apply to play in Executive/Presidential matches, there is a ‘pecking order’ for selection.

County flashes to be worn on the left sleeve of the County Shirt will continue to be awarded after 4 games in 3 years. Both Flashes and Badges are available to buy by those entitled to wear them.

There are two ways to apply:-
1. The Match Application Forms set out the fixtures and ask applicants to mark on them those matches for which they wish to be considered. Other information is also requested on the form. The completed form for men should be returned to me Alan Birch by 31st March 2021. The ladies forms are to be sent to Ladies Assistant Match Sec, Jill Price by 10TH March 2021 as they have early season matches. The Men’s Executive/ Presidential form should be returned to Paul Davies by 31st March 2021.
2. If after sending in your Advance Form your situation changes and you either want to withdraw from consideration for any match, or have your name added to the list of applicants for forthcoming matches, please contact Jill Price, Paul Davies or myself as appropriate.


Aside from National Championship Matches and Junior Matches where other considerations apply, the Match Fee will be as follows:

All Friendly/ Cup/Trophy and League Matches £12

Home Friendlies against Touring Counties (no food) £6

No reduction in the match fee is permitted if a player decides not to take a meal.

A Match Fee of £8 will apply to Executive and Presidential Matches. Where coaches are used for matches, the match fee will be £12 + Coach fare and Coffee will be £2 if the coach stops at The Compass Inn. The coach fare and coffee charge is payable even if players choose not to use it.

DRESS CODE FOR ALL COUNTY LEAGUE, CUP, FRIENDLY AND EXEC/PRES MATCHES is on the website. (Championship Match Dress Code differs) . If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on 01934 842016, Mob 07534975330 or by e-mail at
