County Academy Set To Face Moseley In Friendly Clash

County Academy Set To Face Moseley In Friendly Clash

Worcestershire CCC Academy will hope to launch their 2018 programme on Saturday when – weather permitting – they visit Birmingham Premier League side Moseley for a one-day friendly.

The two teams had been drawn against each other in the first round of the BPL’s Graham Williamson Trophy.

But the pre-season competition has been called off for 2018 because of the recent inclement weather.

The start of the 2018 BPL programme – which often features many Worcestershire CCC players – has been put back a week because of the elements until April 28.

The games that had originally been scheduled for April 21 will instead take place on August 27 – the Bank Holiday Monday.

Academy Coach Elliot Wilson’s side had been due to take part in a three-day festival at Shrewsbury School this week.

But the first two days of scheduled cricket were cancelled because of the weather and now a one-day fixture on Friday has suffered the same fate after yesterday’s downpours.
