Somerset director of cricket Matthew Maynard said:
"I thought the attitude of the team throughout the game was first class. The bowlers did a great job for us, but it showed most in our fielding.
"You expect your younger players to excell in that department, but when the older guys like Tim Groenewald are throwing themselves around to prevent runs it really means something.
"Craig Overton set the tone for us with the ball in both innings. He would have been a tired lad going out there this morning, but still took two wickets with a brilliant aggressiveness.
"A big shout-out to our two spinners as well. We now go to Surrey in a really positive frame of mind, but with a lot of work still to do."
