Bath CC duo named in Somerset County Women’s Squad for 2024
















Two talented young cricketers from Bath Cricket Club have been selected for Somerset County Cricket Club’s Women’s squad for 2024. Evie Dixon and Emma Phillipson both aged 18 have been selected after impressing for the county during the 2023 season.


Evie has been part of the Somerset Pathway for a number of years, representing Somerset in age group cricket since she was aged 12. Emma started playing for Somerset in the U18 age group last season after moving to the county from Surrey.


On being selected, Evie Dixon said:

“To be in the Somerset Women’s squad is a great privilege, especially with the high calibre of players. It’s going to be a busy summer as I’ll also be representing the Bath Wanderers 1st XI with hopes of winning the WEPL again, and I also plan to be part of Bath’s U19 boys XI, to see how far we can progress in the T20 Cup.


For the Somerset Women’s team I’ll be looking to learn off the more experienced players and make the most of the opportunities that come my way by attacking the stumps and being athletic in the field. We’re in a very competitive group so we’ll be looking for a strong start to the season like last year.”  


Emma Phillipson added:

“I’m thrilled to be selected and can’t wait for the seasonto start after putting in a match winning performance with the bat in 2023 to get the Somerset Women over the line. I’m hoping to get a few high scores and use allthe learning and development I have gained over the winter with Somerset and Western Storm.”


Rob Maggs, Director of Cricket, Bath CC, said:

“We’re delighted for both Evie and Emma as this is a great achievement for them both. We’re also looking forward to continuing to support their development through our Wanderers side, and we wish them both well for the 2024 season for both club and county.” 


As part of the official announcement of the squad, Kieran Peters, Pathway Coach & Women & Girls Lead at Somerset CCC, said: “We’re really excited by the squad that we’ve assembled for the summer and we’re really confident in the 14 players that we’ve got in the group. There’s a nice mix of players who have a good deal of experience of playing women’s county cricket alongside some new faces. There’s a good blend of youth and experience and we’re pleased with how things are shaping up.”


It was also announced that the 2024 season will see more 50-over cricket and the introduction of national final in the T20 competition for Somerset Women. The team will also play at the Cooper Associates County Ground this summer when they take on Gloucestershire in a 50-over match on Sunday 14th July.
