MIDDLESEX DISABILITY SIDES CHASING SILVERWARE AS SEASON NEARS AN END

MIDDLESEX DISABILITY SIDES LOOKING FORWARD TO CRUNCH END OF SEASON FINALS WITH SILVERWARE STILL UP FOR GRABS

Congratulations go to the Middlesex Disability D40 Second Eleven and the Middlesex Disability Super 9’s squads, who, as we near the end of their seasons, are still both in the hunt for silverware in their respective competitions.

The MiddlesexD40 Second Eleven wrapped up the D40 Pursuit South Group title a couple of weeks ago and have been waiting patiently for the Pursuit North Group to finish to see who their opponents would be in the National Final.

They now know they will face Yorkshire in the National Final, in a clash being played at Collingham & District Cricket Club in Newark, Nottinghamshire on Sunday 18th September in a clash that gets underway at 12 noon.

Middlesex’s Second Eleven reached the final by virtue of only losing one clash all summer, to Essex who finished runners up in the Group, whereas Yorkshire also tasted defeat just once all season, surprisingly losing out to bottom side Cheshire in their penultimate match of the season.

Both sides will fancy their chances of getting the win that will seal promotion into the top-flight of the D40 structure at the National Final, in what promises to be a closely fought encounter.

Middlesex Super 9’s side have reached the South East Regional Final of their competition, winning four and losing three of the matches they’ve played this summer and finishing as Group runners-up.

In the Regional Final they will go head-to-head with Essex on Sunday 4th September at Harold Wood Park in Essex in a game starting at 1pm, and they’ll have their work cut out against a side that has already beaten them twice in the Group stages.

Middlesex finished behind Essex in the South East Division, with the Harlow based side going unbeaten all season, winning every match they’ve played, and they’ll head into the Regional Final as favourites to take the title.

Middlesex will need to be at their very best against Essex to come out of it with the trophy, although as proven on more than one occasion this summer, when on song, Middlesex are a side more than capable of beating anyone on their day!

We wish both Middlesex Disability sides every success in their respective finals and it would be terrific to see plenty of members there in support of the two teams.
