Jack Haynes will make his first appearance of 2019 for Worcestershire Seconds when they return to Trophy action tomorrow (Monday) against their Yorkshire counterparts at Kidderminster.

Haynes suffered a foot injury during the winter which ruled him out of England Under-19s tour of Bangladesh.

But the 18-year-old started on the comeback trail two weeks ago for Malvern College, where he is in the final year of his studies, by making 80 against Repton.

On Saturday Haynes scored an unbeaten 47 for Ombersley in the Birmingham League.

Former Leicestershire and Sussex batsman Angus Robson will make another appearance for the Seconds after scoring 21 in the rain-ruined Championship match with Warwickshire at Barnt Green last week.

Left arm paceman Alex Wilkinson, who has appeared for the Seconds in previous years and played for Herefordshire, is also named in the side.

Alex Milton will skipper the Seconds as well as keeping wicket as Worcestershire look to get back on the winning trail in the 50 over competition.

They defeated Leicestershire by eight wickets at RGS Worcester but either side of that fixture went down by four wickets to Warwickshire at Moseley and 54 runs to Lancashire at Southport.

Play gets underway at Chester Road at 11am tomorrow and admission is free.
