Interesting name in friendly eleven
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.
