Interesting name in friendly eleven

The name of Tim Maxfield (pictured) may not mean much to many local cricket fans, but the Staffordshire batsman, who can bowl useful medium pace, has a place in the Derbyshire eleven for the game against a Kevin Dean XI at Alvaston and Boulton tomorrow night.

One assumes it is a trial for a player who has earned a reputation as a hard-hitting and fast-scoring batsman in Staffordshire cricket. He will be well known to Kim Barnett and has some impressive performances to his name.

Playing for Walsall in a T20 match, he hit a remarkable 157 from 59 balls a couple of years back, while this summer he has impressed for Staffordshire in all forms of the game.

A left handed batsman, Maxfield also bowls left arm medium pace and has taken 5-25 and 4-18 in his last two one-day outings for Staffordshire, while also scoring an unbeaten 83 against Herefordshire, with nine fours and five sixes.

He normally bats at three and, at 26, has also played for the Unicorns.

Worth keeping an eye on...

Funnily enough I saw his name and googled him and saw he seems to like hitting 6s also

Let's give him a shot. All for that. Quite a few names in the second Xl that I've never heard of too.

Played in the under 11s at Wednesbury CC. He was head and shoulders above everyone else in the league. Go Tim ��

Players who like hitting sixes are good!
