The Surrey Second XI programme has been confirmed for the 2014 campaign, with the club’s second string side set for a busy year of fixtures.
As in previous years, Second XI action will be spread around the county with games set to be played at the grounds of a number of clubs in the Ryman Surrey Championship including Guildford, Purley and Cheam.
All Second XI matches are free of charge for all to attend.
The season will start with a three day friendly against Hampshire at Guildford before the competitive cricket gets underway the following week with a three day Second XI Championship match and One Day Second XI Trophy match against Gloucestershire at Bristol from April 21-24.
The following week will see Surrey go to Horsham for a two friendly followed by a One Day Trophy match against Sussex.
Surrey will be defending the Second XI T20 Cup title they won last year in the second half of May with group games against Kent, Hampshire, Sussex and the MCC Young Cricketers – with finals day again set to be played at the picturesque Arundel Castle on Friday June 5th.
There will only be one ‘combined’ match in 2014, with Surrey putting out a joint side with Hampshire to take on Sussex at Horsham in a three day friendly from September 10-12.
Keep an eye on kiaoval.com and the official Surrey Twitter page throughout the season for the best available coverage of the Second XI.
