From the 3rd XI Captain
Last year saw the unprecedented success of the 3rd XI winning the Premier League title with a staggering 147 points and finishing the season with 11 wins in a row. The season featured contributions from everyone that played for the team; a variety of players hitting tons, players taking 5 wicket hauls, unbelievable fielding and some seriously early finishes.
Last year’s blend of experienced Midd players, newcomers, and talented youth, has been built on this winter to give us a real chance of pushing for the title again in 2016. With all this in mind selection will be tricky as we have so many players vying to break into the 2nd team and even the 1st XI.
This year I want the team to play with determination to dominate teams again, scrap when we have to, and be ruthless when we create our chances. If we can do this alongside the smile that we get playing with a good group of guys we will have another fantastic year.
Up the Midd!
