Lincolnshire CCC Media Release
July 4, 2002
A place in the quarter-finals of the 38 County Cup competition awaits Lincolnshire if they beat Leicestershire County Board XI at Cleethorpes on Sunday.
But the county team will be without captain Mark Fell, who has been at the bedside of his two week old son after it was found that the baby needed an urgent operation.
Instead, vice-captain James Clarke will be leading the Lincs team which includes Cleethorpes' Simon Webb, who replaces Fell, and sees the return of Simon Oakes who missed the recent three day game against Bucks. Webb's team mate Jonathan Davies, now back in action after injury, is rested for this game in preparation for the next three day match, against Northumberland in mid-July.
The match, which is 50 overs per side, begins at 11am and spectators are welcome at the Chichester Road ground.
