Blues to take on Spencer and Teddington
Thursday 14 April 2016
Captain Jamie Abbott has announced the sides to take on Spencer CC on Saturday at Fenner's and Teddington CC on Sunday at Girton, with the latter fixture seeing a return to Cambridge for former Blues captains Tom Elliott and Alasdair Pollock. Let's hope the weather stays dry and the Blues can put their hard pre-season effort into practice.
Saturday sees Blues debuts for freshers Jonathan French, Tom Colverd, Ali Dewhurst, Oli Taylor and Sam Jelley, as well as second year Angus Dalgleish. Paceman Connor Emerton, allegedly still celebrating the dismissal of James Anderson, dons the CUCC shirt once again after missing the previous two seasons with injury. It is a return to Blues cricket for Alex Waghorn and Rory Sale, while Patrick Tice and Darshan Chohan join Abbott in a side with three blues.
Sunday's side to face Teddington includes one change, with seamer Lyle Hill replacing Connor Emerton after the former's impressive 6 wicket haul on Wednesday.
The only thing more certain than a bit of drizzle this weekend is Alasdair Pollock complaining about not being able to play at Fenner's - looking to impress at his new club, only time will tell if the extra weight on his hips transfers to extra weight on his shoulders.
