Har­ri­son takes over as chief in Bucks shake-up

For­mer county skip­per takes the post in new struc­ture

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

locked horns in Di­vi­sion One of the Wy­combe & Amer­sham Darts League this week.

Tot­teridge SC Wooburn Club, took on the and the early only one or two play­ers over the age of 25, and re­sults re­ally picked up at the end of the sea­son, so they have proved that if you are good enough you are old enough.

“They were play­ing very well, so we hope to carry that on, and there’s stages saw Tot­teridge take con­trol to lead 3-1, but Wooburn bounced back to win the fi­nal two pairs matches and level the match at 3-3.

The sin­gles again saw Tot­teridge

Ja­son Har­ri­son is the new Bucks CCC di­rec­tor of cricket; (above right); Tom Hamp­ton has been snapped up by Glouces­ter­shire prob­a­bly a few more ready to break through too. Jonathan Bur­den is another fast bowler who is only 18 or 19 and bowled very well last sea­son.

“Tom is still very young too in crick­et­ing terms. Last sea­son was only his first with the county, but he bowled very well.

“I’m not sure yet what his Glouces­ter­shire com­mit­ments will mean for us next year, but hope­fully he will be avail­able to play a few games.

“Alex played for us for a few sea­sons as a teenager and al­ways looked the part, but it’s al­ways dif­fi­cult to tell with crick­eters.

“He went for a few tri­als but noth­ing came of them – then Notts came in for him and he has never looked back.

“Hope­fully he can ce­ment his Eng­land place in time for next year’s World Cup. He has proved he can do it in Twenty20, but now needs to show he can do it con­sis­tently in the 50-over game.”

Mean­while, there are a cou­ple of fix­tures next year the county are al­ready look­ing for­ward to. A one­day game will be played at the newly re­fur­bished Che­sham CC ground, and a knock out cup tie against Ox­ford­shire will see a first re­turn in two decades to the John Paul Getty ground at Wormsley CC.
