WHEN winter and summer team sports collide...

It is that full-on, hectic time of the year when winter and summer team sports go head-to-head (and whatever happens it rains).

The hockey season may well be over but many rugby union and football teams still have important league matches, play-offs and cup finals as their respective seasons go down to the wire.

First class cricket counties - Glamorgan, Gloucestershire and Somerset - are already well down the track in their county championship programmes while Devon, Dorset, Wales and Wiltshire were at the crease for the opening rounds of the Minor Counties KO Trophy last weekend.

Cornwall begin their Minor Counties knock at home to Hertfordshire at Werrington CC on Sunday May 5.

The Devon, Dorset, Somerset and West of England Premier League seasons all bowl-in next Saturday, May 4.

Somerset start a week later - May 11 - with a trip to Tiverton RFC to play Devon.

American football, athletics and tennis are underway and regional summer rugby league and seasonal rugby union sevens tournaments are just around the corner.

Cycling will be massive again this summer while tapes have already gone up on the speedway season and ...

I remain passionate about making South West Sports News the best regional sports hub it can be...
