Seconds Head To Chester Road In Pole Position

Worcestershire Seconds will go into tomorrowโ€™s Trophy match with Nottinghamshire at Kidderminster CC sitting proudly on top of the North Group table.

Coach Alex Gidmanโ€™s side have won their opening three matches in impressive style.

They overcame Warwickshire at Blackfinch New Road, Derbyshire at Alvaston and Boulton and MCC Young Cricketers at Merchant Taylorโ€™s School.

Worcestershire are the only side to still have a 100 per cent record.

There are 10 teams in both groups but counties only play six fixtures with the top two in the North Group and the South Group progressing to the last four.

Worcestershire conclude their group programme in the next seven days.

After tomorrowโ€™s fixture at Chester Road – 11am start – they face Durham at Hartlepool CC on Thursday and then entertain Lancashire at Barnt Green next Monday (May 21).
