Uxbridge hosts champs


Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

UXBRIDGE Sports Club will again host County Cham­pi­onship cricket as cham­pi­ons Mid­dle­sex take on Hamp­shire from Septem­ber 12-15.

The Seaxes last played at Gat­ting Way in the four-day game in June 2015, when they drew with Worces­ter­shire.

Mid­dle­sex’s four-day record at Uxbridge does not make for pleas­ant read­ing – they have not won on the ground since a one-run tri­umph over Le­ices­ter­shire in 1995. Mark Ram­prakash scored a cen­tury in each in­nings be­fore Phil Tufnell (5/100) and John Em­bu­rey (4/81) spun the Seaxes to vic­tory.

Last sea­son Mid­dle­sex played at Old Mer­chant Tay­lor’s – in­ci­den­tally against Hamp­shire – and claimed a com­pre­hen­sive in­nings vic­tory on their way to the ti­tle.

Uxbridge will also be the venue for two Natwest T20 Blast games as Som­er­set visit on Sun­day July 16, with Glouces­ter­shire play­ing there on Au­gust 15.
