With the new season rapidly approaching the County looks forward to making further progress towards being a more successful County team where players want to play, make themselves available and enjoy a great deal of success both on and off the field.
Although there had been some concern at the decision to forge stronger links with Durham CCC the results speak for themselves. The County won three championship matches both home and away, something not managed for many years and although not successful reached the final of the National KO Cup.
The Development XI also continues to play an important role in the overall improvement of the County by involving younger players in the 17-25 age group in high standard representative cricket against quality opposition. Last season saw them play their first two day fixture and this will continue this season with a two day fixture away to a Lincolnshire Development XI.
Once again the County team will be managed by Stuart Tiffin and the Development side by Steve Williams. Coaching support for the County side comes from Geoff Cook and for the Development XI from Dougal Moir. Jacques Du Toit will continue to captain the side. Everyone on the County Management Committee wishes everyone involved all the very best for the new season and will continue to provide them with all the support they require.
Lets hope that we can continue to improve and make the Northumberland cricket team a side where all players in the region want to play for.
