Zummerzet in action at Lords in London against Hampshire in Royal London One-Day Cup,kick off at 11:00am
Not sure if any specials will be organised.
The 08:25 from Taunton is the only flyer,stopping at Reading only arriving in London at 10:10
Get in early if your thinking of using the train.

If any specials are organised,
be nice if they could pick up at Weston super mare,Highbridge and Bridgwater on the way down to Taunton.
As I presume the empty set will start its journey from Stoke Gifford.
Good luck Somerset.

I can't see any extra trains being organised at this late stage with so little notice.

On a side note the way the ECB have treated the One Day Cup cramming it in to such a small time frame really has diminished it giving fans little chance to organize travelling to away games.
