    of 20 year old Aadil Ali 84 and Michael Burgess 49 who is 21 Leicestershire s young guns played exceptionally well during a sixth wicket partnership that not only handed the team a chance of getting home but also gave Members and supporters plenty of reasons to be optimistic for the future Burgess praised Ali and feels that the club is taking strides forward but also acknowledged the need to convert performances into points He said I went through the processes I have been working on with Head Coach Andrew McDonald and Aadil was playing so well that I had time to get in As soon as I was in we said let s play how we play and see how far we can take it Massive credit has to go to Aadil as well as Tayls Rob Taylor and Squid Clint McKay who were exceptional to get us close but as we said in the dressing room close isn t good enough anymore We know that we are making progress but there comes a time when progress isn t quite good enough and we need to start winning games and winning games consistently We know that we have got a structure and a coaching staff that will allow us to do that so it s down to the players to deliver that for us game in game out The Foxes now have back to back away matches at Yorkshire Vikings and Derbyshire Falcons before taking on reigning champions Durham at Grace Road on Thursday morning 10 30am start Yorkshire can call on considerable international experience in Glenn Maxwell Adil Rashid and Gary Ballance and also have a number of talented younger players like Jack Leaning and Matthew Fisher Maxwell smashed 111 off 76 balls as the Vikings won at Worcestershire last Thursday while Rashid and Ballance have played for England this summer The impressive Leaning and Fisher did well against the Foxes in the NatWest T20 Blast thriller at Grace Road so the team are well aware of their talents Burgess said Losing against Gloucestershire was tough to take but we ll take a lot of confidence into the match against Yorkshire on Monday They are a good team but we have to get off and running Derbyshire have had a mixed start to the tournament with fine wins against Somerset and Northants coming either side of defeats to Yorkshire and Gloucestershire Paul Collingwood s expertly crafted century guided Durham to an opening day win at Northants before their second game against Worcestershire was washed out Durham then landed a tremendous seven wicket win at Somerset where they hauled down a target of 328 with 21 balls to spare thanks in large to an opening stand of 211 between captain Mark Stoneman 112 and wicket keeper Phil Mustard 98 A first defeat then came for Durham against Surrey on Friday The Foxes have named a 14 man squad for the start of a huge few days of RLODC action

    a big vote of confidence in the club seeing all of the players recently re signed Right from the start of the year getting in Chief Executive Wasim Khan and Head Coach Andrew McDonald and players like Clint McKay and Mark Cosgrove has given the club a big boost The results haven t shown it yet but the performances have been a lot better than they have been in the past We are very close to turning the corner and making big strides forward It s already been a good season for Robson but the Leicestershire opener is not one to rest on his laurels Robson is already looking ahead to how he can improve and is keen to make his mark in white ball cricket The batsman put himself in prime position to open in the Royal London One Day Cup having posted an assured half century against New Zealand in June and fulfilled that role in the Royal London One Day Cup match at Northamptonshire I want to do well in one day cricket as well as four day cricket said Robson I ve been given the chance to open the batting in one day cricket and hopefully I can take my opportunity and the team does well I am very keen to get as much as I can out of my game If I can finish well this season then I can get beyond 1 000 runs so I am looking to keep getting stuck in and hopefully post a couple more hundreds and better what I did last year in red ball cricket I m pretty happy with where I am at I ve probably tailed off in the last few weeks compared to the start of the year but I feel that I am in

    given their opportunity in the first team McDonald recently signed a two year extension to his contract as Head Coach and McKay Robson and Sykes have followed his lead while off spinner Sayer will be at Grace Road until at least the end of the 2018 season McDonald said These four guys are going to help to form the core of Leicestershire County Cricket Club going forward and that s really important to us We already have a nice blend of youth and experience and we re also going to add to the nucleus of players that we have We want players who want to be here and contribute to Leicestershire County Cricket Club It s about building the club around good people and you ll see no finer four people than those who have just signed new contracts It s great news for the club It s that time of the year where we are assessing where we are at as a club We re looking at who can take the club forward and how we move forward That s what we re continually asking ourselves as a High Performance Staff and we believe that we re on the right track The influence of McKay on the field has been huge with the seamer set to reach the 50 wicket mark in the Championship having also shone in white ball cricket with his nagging accuracy and clever variations The Victorian has also been an important part of the dressing room with the younger players tapping into his vast experience McKay said It s been great to work with bowlers like Ben Raine and Ollie Freckingham and all of the younger players They have been great around the group and it s always nice to pass on your experience and

    start of the season against the best bowlers in the country when pitches are at their toughest is a great experience You train all winter at university and it s a professional set up at Loughborough so it sets you up really well to move to a county Russell Cobb has been really good to me He said it was okay to come and train and play here around my commitments at university He knows this county really well and I have had all of his support which has been great It was really nice to get 100 at Kent it was quite a flat wicket but it s always good to get a hundred It s also nice to for the universities to compete against the first class counties in proper games Burgess is a talented batsman and wicket keeper who came through the age group system at Surrey but he also knows the importance of education He believes that the supportive nature of Loughborough University allows players to feel comfortable in dealing with their busy schedules We got 400 against Kent and 300 against Nottinghamshire so everybody believed that as a team we were good enough to compete said Burgess You re not always going to compete all of the time because it s quite tough to balance a degree and sport But everybody who played those games realised that it was achievable and it was good for me to realise that it s in my grasp to do things properly I am two years into my sport science degree and although it can be tough to balance sport and academics it s really important that I get a degree to make sure that there is a life after cricket Loughborough are really supportive of all of their

    to send the Foxes fans home happy by producing a performance and result that also gives the side impetus going into Sunday s Royal London One Day Cup opener against Surrey You don t want to lose any game he said We beat Nottinghamshire at their own ground so it s a big game for us to see if we can back up what we did there We need to show that performance and result wasn t a one off It s also a local game and that s important to the club and the fans In these situations you have to try to win and spoil somebody else s fun We want to go out there and put in a performance like we did at the start of the competition We have played some very good white ball cricket in patches and a good game on Friday night would give us some momentum to take into the Surrey match on Sunday It s a big game for us Former Foxes Harry Gurney and James Taylor will be making returns to Grace Road and the left arm seamer is looking forward to a reunion with his former teammates He said Grace Road will always be a special place for myself and Titch James Taylor and it always feels slightly weird going back but the main priority is to make sure we get the two points otherwise we can t qualify Taylor added The whole situation s not ideal But we ve got ourselves into this situation and hopefully we can get ourselves out of it by winning the fourth of what we knew would be four finals That s the way we ve got to look at it and obviously it s against one of our local rivals so it

    Charlie Shreck proves a good omen on the last day of the enthralling LV CC game at Cheltenham The last time Shreck played at the College Ground his Kent side were set 411 to win on the final day and got home with 2 2 overs to spare Although the visitors officially won by two wickets Brendan Nash had retired through exhaustion on the hottest day of the 2013 summer after making a sensational 199 So it came down to last pair Calum Haggett and Shreck who struck three fours in making 16 not out in a stand of 21 While Shreck would be happier to see his teammates knock off the runs tomorrow it was his 5 82 on the third day that was the key contribution to set up a chase of 325 The in form bowler who now has 49 Championship wickets in 11 games praised the way Gloucestershire went about their business and feels the wicket is now better suited to the batsmen having favoured the seamers for the first two days Shreck said I think they batted nicely They waited for us to get tired because we only had three frontline seamers out there Around tea time they were more expansive but as a group we stuck at it It s going to be a good day tomorrow I think the tennis ball bounce on the wicket exaggerates any movement so hopefully the heavy roller we have got tomorrow will kill some of that bounce until the ball gets a bit softer and we can make hay in the afternoon It will be a good game to win from here but I would love to sit back and watch the whole day But we will have to see what happens During the day Gloucestershire s

    2016 Match Ticket Prices LCCC Interviews 16th July 2015 Gritty Cosgrove leads way for County REACTION By Richard Latham Leicestershire CCC Captain Mark Cosgrove relished the testing conditions as the team battled hard on the second day at Cheltenham Gloucestershire ended the day 57 ahead in their second innings effectively three wickets down with the loss of injured captain Ian Cockbain The skipper earlier ground out a vital 74 and young Aadil Ali made 40 valuable runs as the team got within a whisker of Gloucestershire s first innings 218 Cosgrove said Batting out there was really tough as tough as anything I ve experienced this year You play and miss a lot but then it is the same for everyone in those conditions I just tried to stay there as long as I could and that 74 would probably have been worth a lot more on another day and on another ground In the end I was disappointed not to go on and get a hundred Batting becomes a bit easier when the ball goes soft and to be honest I felt we should have gone on to establish a first innings lead Gloucestershire Head Coach Richard Dawson was pleased with the way his side stuck to their task as the game continued to ebb and flow He said From day one the message to the players has been to be competitive in every session I cannot fault their efforts in the field They stuck at it showed character and discipline and got their rewards It was a good bowling and fielding performance It was good old fashioned hard cricket and we held on in there and kept plugging away Had you offered me any kind of first innings lead when we were 114 for six on the first
