Twin sisters Jodie and Lauren Filer have both been selected for the Somerset County development squad.

TWINS Jodie and Lauren Filer, aged 13, have both been selected for the Somerset County girls’ development squad.

Both girls attended trials at Taunton in December, which involved six two-hour sessions and involved 50 girls from around the county.

They are currently attended coaching sessions with head coach Caroline Atkins. Jodie is receiving special coaching from spin bowler Paul Lawrence and Lauren is getting guidance from fast bowler Steffan Jones.

The sisters are also looking forward to meeting Charlotte Edwards, fresh from the successful women’s Ashes Series in Australia, who will share her expertise with the district and county players in the February half-term.
