Game 3 - against Somerset at Taunton

Tuesday was a rest day but although the weather was fine, the wind was bitterly cold so we did not do the exploring we had planned.
On the Wednesday morning we set off for Taunton for the game against Somerset Over 60s at Taunton Vale Cricket Club. After a quick lunch of bacon rolls our players were out on the oval doing their warm-ups.
The players then posed for a photograph before the game began.
The match resulted in the third tour win for the Australian team. Somerset won the toss and batted on a flat wicket. They made 3 for 236 in their 45 over innings with three players retiring at 50. Australia passed the score with three overs to go. John Dedman, Murray Harrison and Phil Dresher all reaching 50.
During the afternoon the WAGS went exploring and visited the village of Dunster on the edge of the Exmoor National Park and a short distance from the coast. As some of the group had missed lunch we stopped off for afternoon tea before exploring the picturesque village. Many of the buildings date back to Medieval times.
