Excitement builds for LV County Championship

Matthew Hoggard is looking forward to the start of the LV County Championship on 6th April 2014. Hoggy will be appearing at an event at Chester-Le-Street with fellow Ashes legends Simon Jones and Steve Harmison to preview the championship and share stories of their time playing for England. The trio were integral members of the bowling attack that played such a crucial role in England winning the Ashes in 2003.

This is the first time Hoggy has not played in the County Championship since 1996, after he announced his retirement last year. Last year’s county championship was won by Durham and it looks set to be another closely fought contest.
