Durham Claim Second Eleven Championship

Durham County Cricket Club Chairman, Clive W Leach CBE, today presented the Durham CCC 2XI with the First Class Counties Second Eleven Championship Trophy.

Durham 2XI Captain Gordon Muchall was presented the trophy on behalf of the team after Durham topped the 2XI Championship table after an unbeaten run in 2008. Durham recorded eight wins and seven draws, scoring the highest batting points (42) in the league.

Durham 2XI Captain Gordon Muchall, said, "It’s been a great season for the team, there have been some excellent individual performances which have really moved the team forward as a whole. The team has been really strong all season and we deserved to walk away with the trophy."

Durham CCC Chief Executive, David Harker, added, "The 2XI will produce the future stars of our first team and to see them achieving success in the Second Eleven Championship is particularly exciting."
