SOMERSET had to settle for a draw in the LV= County Championship at Old Trafford today after rain put paid to their hopes of beating Lancashire.

The home side county needed another 122 to make Somerset bat again after ending day three on 95-3 after following on.

After no play was possible during the morning, umpires Steve Garratt and Neil Mallender scheduled a 1.40pm start.

But the weather closed in again before the teams could make it out to the middle and the game was abandoned just over an hour later.

Unbeaten Somerset's 12 points kept them in third place in the Division One table, 12 behind leaders Middlesex.
