2nd X1 champions


Staff member
This has gone largely under the radar, perhaps because so few 2nd X1 matches were played in Aug and Sept, well probably none in Aug because of you know what. Also because we have so much else to worry about. Well the rained off final day at Folkestone allowed us to win the competition.

However they reckon it out we'll take it.

It would be nice if Matthew could bookend his County championship season with back to back wins against Gloucestershire.

Fisher, Coad, Brook and Malan all played in that first game. Our strong batting in the early part of the season gave us the points, and the cushion that may save us now. The subsequent injuries to the two bowlers meant we couldn't win, then our batsmen were taken, and our batting became as bad as the bowling. Almost.

Great news about the 2s, with the Academy also winning their little group of six, and the U16s just missing out in the National final, we continue to provide players for Evil England. Just heard Nasser Someone suggesting that it was playing in the PCL that was responsible for Harry's excellent temperament. Four years learning the trade with Yorkshire obviously count for nothing.
