Tough Start To Promotion Chase In 2018 in Specsavers County Championship

The fixture list computer certainly has not been kind for the 2018 season for Northamptonshire, who will begin the challenge for promotion from Division 2 of the Specsavers County Championship away against Middlesex at Lords on Friday 13 April.

The club will then face a challenging home match against Warwickshire (Friday 20 April) and then Durham (Friday 27 April) also at home before welcoming the touring Pakistan national side to Wantage Road on Friday 4 May for a four day match as a warm up match for the Asian nation before their two Tests against England.

Northamptonshire then travel away to face Warwickshire at Edgbaston on Friday 11 May before a window for Royal London One-Day Cup group games.

Here's to a successful season in 2018 - hopefully the club can do itself proud in all three formats as it did last season, despite the well documented financial challenges that means we have one of the smallest professional budgets going.
