Cricket: Trego to skipper second’s season opener at Lady Bay

Peter Trego will lead Nottinghamshire’s Second XI in their opening outing of 2021, with Lancashire providing the opposition at Lady Bay for a behind-closed-doors cricket fixture.

Trego, who was ever-present during Notts’ 2020 Bob Willis Trophy campaign, will skipper the side in their first red-ball encounter of the season, with matches in this season’s Championship taking place over four days to more closely mirror the First-Class game.

Whilst this summer is set to see the return of a more extensive programme of Second XI cricket, all fixtures are to be played behind closed doors until further notice in line with current government guidelines.

The seconds will contest a further five four-day fixtures across April and May, before focus switches to the limited-overs formats.

A block of white-ball cricket will commence with a one-day friendly against a Nottinghamshire Premier League XI, with a run of T20 fixtures to follow.

A series of longer-form encounters follow from 28 June, beginning with a trip to face tomorrow’s opponents at Southport.
