In this month's staff newsletter, Michael Wilson gives us an update on how the Club's disability squads are getting on so far this summer:

With the season well underway, it is great to see all of our disability sides performing well in the respective competitions.

The D40 First Eleven have won two out of the three Quest League matches that they have played so far…

Their last outing saw us defeat Hampshire, who lost their first match in years. That was extremely pleasing to see – with Naseer Butt (69) and George Greenway (46) making valuable contributions with the ball, before Mohammed Farooq tore things up with the ball, claiming 3/15 from six overs.

At the end of May, the side chased down 110 inside 22 overs to win by nine wickets. Sam Kumar shone with the ball that day, taking 4/16 from seven overs.

The D40 season began with a trip to the Kia Oval. Despite the result, it was great to see disability cricket played at one of the most iconic venues anywhere in the world. Our players are better for the experience, having been able to bat and bowl on a top surface and ply their trades in perfect conditions.

Maddox Colby notched 62 and raised the bat, while Jai Charan led the way with the ball – taking 3/9 in six overs.

For the D40 Second Eleven, their sole win in the Pursuit League came against Hampshire. Butt made 92 at the top of the order and Lucy Hunter claimed 3/40 with the ball.

In the S9 Regional League, our Super 9s have won three from three having brushed aside both Kent, Essex and Hampshire.
