Somerset County Cricket Club is one of the 18 major county clubs which make up the English and Welsh domestic cricket structure, representing the historic county of Somerset. The club's limited overs team was formerly the Somerset Sabres, but is now known as just Somerset.
The county club was founded in 1875, and was granted first-class status in 1882, and then again in 1891, having lost it for five years between. Somerset have never won the County Championship, in which they have competed since 1891 making the team the oldest established county never to have been champions, the county's highest finish being second, which was achieved in 2001, 2010 and 2012. The club won their first silverware in the late 1970s, winning both the Gillette Cup and John Player League in 1979. In the years since, Somerset have experienced some success in one-day cricket, winning the Gillette Cup on two further occasions, the Benson & Hedges Cup twice and the John Player League once more. Since the introduction of Twenty20 cricket in 2003, the club have reached the final of the Twenty20 cup competition on four occasions, winning the competition in 2005.
The club has its headquarters at the County Ground, Taunton, where in the present-day almost all of its games are played at. Since 2005, Somerset also play at Taunton Vale against MCC Universities teams (including first-class matches in 2012 and 2015);〔(Cricket Archive ) Taunton Vale: First-class matches played at〕 Taunton Vale is also the regular home venue for the Second XI team. The club have played at a number of other grounds in their past, with a significant number of matches (until 1996) at Clarence Park, Weston-super-Mare and (until 2011) at the Recreation Ground, Bath.
