The Northants Cadet team were in action today in Division 2B of the Cadet County Championships. Corby Smash TTC played host to the division which featured teams from Lancashire, Gwent, Derbyshire, Worcestershire and Leicestershire. The Northants team consisted of Daniel Bain (WDHTTC), Danny Verrall (Harborough TTC), Alex Cochrane (Corby Smash TTC) and Swati Jethwa (WDHTTC).
A team should consist of 3 boys and 2 girls but we are currently severely lacking in the number of girls playing and only get one girl to play. All 3 boys were making their County Cadet debuts.
Despite having the handicap of being a player short (So starting our 3 matches 2-0 down), we managed to get a 6-4 win vs Leicestershire, and secure a 5-5 draw against Worcestershire. Lancashire were a much tougher nut to crack and we slipped to an 8-2 defeat.
Congratulations go to Swati who, after 3 years of trying, finally claimed her first victories at this level. Awesome stuff and fully deserved too. Danny Verrall and Danny Bain both won 2 from 6. Alex Cochrane showed exactly why he won the recent Northants Cadets Invitation, when after a tricky start to the day vs Leicestershire, he grew into the day to finish unbeaten with 6 wins from 6 including solid victories over two players ranked in the top 60 on the England Cadet Ranking List.
Counties look to the future with friendly match
Author: Michael Loveder Publish date: July 9, 2018
While England's footballers were tackling Sweden in the World Cup quarter-finals, it was Surrey and Sussex who kicked off an initiative involving their younger cadets from the age of just eight.
Friendly county matches were arranged primarily for the counties' relatively inexperienced potential. The underlying criteria was to introduce young players who had not previously participated in the County Championships.
When these young players do eventually officially represent their county it is hoped they will not be overawed by the experience. The friendlies also gave the counties' coaches some pointers on where to focus their attention next.
The intention is that these friendly matches will be backed up by some joint coaching sessions which are planned to involve Surrey, Sussex and, in due course, Kent players, the constituent counties of the South East region.
Whilst the initiative is still in its infancy it is hoped it will lead to bigger and better opportunities for the region in the not too distant future.
The results saw Surrey A beat Sussex A 8-2, while Surrey B and Sussex B drew 5-5. Sussex A took consolation in beating Surrey B 6-4 and Surrey A beat Sussex B 8-2. To end the day, Surrey A beat Surrey B 9-1.
Stand-out performances for Sussex came from John Strang (4/4) and Harry Yip (4/4) while for Surrey it was Jacob Archer (4/4) and Ojay Borah (3/4) with the girls Naziyah Hasan winning 6/6 and Caron Charles 5/6.
