Published: 19th January, 2017
The Surrey Second XI fixtures for 2017 have been confirmed – with the side kicking off their campaign away at Sussex on Monday April 10th.
The fixture list, taking in the three day Second XI Championship, the One Day Second XI Trophy and the Second XI T20 competition will see Surrey largely play around the south of England, with the furthest away trip being a week in Neath to play Glamorgan in June.
Whilst there are no games scheduled for the Kia Oval – due to the ground’s heavy schedule of First XI and International cricket – there will be a number of matches at the Surrey CCC training ground, the LSE Ground in New Malden, and games will be played at Surrey club grounds in Purley, Sunbury and Guildford CC – as well as at Whitgift School in south Croydon.
Away matches will also be relatively close to home with a three day game against Kent at Beckenham in June and seven days of cricket scheduled against Sussex at Hove or the Blackstone Academy Ground.
Although previous years have seen the Second XI trial new competition formats, 2017 will be a straightforward year with no innovations presently due to be tested in the games.
As in recent seasons, T20 matches will be played as double headers with games due to start at approximately 11am and 3pm on each day.
Entrance for all Second XI games is free of charge to all – and all support from Surrey fans is welcomed – although spectator facilities at the grounds can sometimes be limited.
