Inter Counties 2011 – May 28/31st – Brighton & Eastbourne (Southwick & Compton) (by Paul Rigge 31/05/11)
Paul Rigge, turned out again for the fourth time for his county, Lancashire, and after four full days play, they are still top class material (!) stuck mid table in Division 1. That’s not quite the way this year’s campaign went, in fact we were stuck in the relegation zone and due to drop, but by beating Middlesex in our last rubber 2-1, by the margin +1t in the third game, just crawled out in time. In line with previous years the weather was cold and windy but this year we didn’t get any rain at all over the full four days, in fact sun appeared on the last afternoon.
