Good news from the Twos...

Good to see Derbyshire's second string under Garry Park winning two games in a day against Durham. There were runs from Chesney Hughes and Ben McGuire (a new name on me), as well as good spells from Matt Higginbottom and the skipper.

More good news came from the Second XI T20 in Yorkshire, where England Under-19s beat their hosts twice, aided and abetted by fine bowling from Tom Knight. Opening the bowling in the first match, Tom returned the remarkable figures of 4-1-12-2, a remarkable effort by any standards and one that could see him in the frame for the T20 proper when it starts.

In the second game he bowled his 4 overs for 32, by no means a bad spell and it is good to see the youngster bowling so well after a winter where he picked up a nasty injury.

Well done Tom - look forward to seeing you back in the senior side soon!

Ben Mcguire is another who plays in the Staffordshire leagues, along with the likes of Dan Redfern and Hamza Siddique.
A very talented 20yr old batsmen, he used to be on Notts books, and has regularly represented Staffordshire.

No worries. Good to see the second XI doing well, and more of our youngsters shining.
