Durham’s 2018 Specsavers County Championship campaign will begin with a home fixture against Kent on Friday, 20 April.

The season will also see Durham finish at home against 2016 County Champions Middlesex starting on Monday, 24 September.

All seven of the home Championship matches will be at Emirates Riverside with two away fixtures at outgrounds – against Sussex at Arundel (20-23 June) & Gloucestershire at Cheltenham (22-25 July).

The ten-team Second Division means Durham will play four teams once – Middlesex & Kent at home, while we’ll play Glamorgan & Gloucestershire on the road.

Durham MCCU will visit Emirates Riverside in the final pre-season friendly on Friday, 13 April.

The Royal London One-Day Cup will once again be played in a four-week block throughout May & June, beginning at home to Yorkshire Vikings on Friday, 18 May under the lights at Emirates Riverside.

Jon Lewis’ side will also be returning to South Northumberland CC on Friday, 25 May to take on 2017 North Group winners Worcestershire Rapids.

The other two home fixtures are Warwickshire on Friday, 1 June & Notts Outlaws on Sunday, 3 June.

Our T20 Blast fixtures for 2018 were released yesterday, meaning Durham’s full 2018 summer has now been mapped out.
