Nottinghamshire Men’s 70+ County Report
• 1 MINUTE READ
I'm sure that all the county team captains will agree that the 2021 season has been difficult for several reasons. Firstly, early in the season due to the Covid pandemic, the uncertainty displayed by both teams creating a reluctance to arrange fixtures. Add the fact that the matches were in effect “friendlies” conspired to dullen enthusiasm and motivation! Finally, in the case of the Men’s 70+ team, advancing old age and injuries! (I always think it is wise to get your excuses in early!)
Match 1 v Leicestershire (Away) at Carrisbrooke - 28 July
David Carter pulled up after the first round (hamstring) but played on in stoic fashion.
Match 2 v Warwickshire (Home) at WBTC – 18 August
Match 3 v Herefordshire & Worcestershire (Away) at Malvern – 21 October
- Chris Brandon-White was appointed captain (and translator) as he hails from the Malvern area.
- With prior agreement Alan Philpott played although “underage”.
- Nick Shelvey pulled out after the first round (knee) and their substitute came in for Notts.

- 3 of the 4 matches were lost by Notts in the championship tie-break.
