Reigning county champions Surrey will visit Suffolk next season.

Woolpit CC will stage the Showcase fixture between Suffolk and the LV= Insurance County Championship Division One winners on Sunday, July 30.

The 50-over-a-side match follows on from the success of Woolpit CC hosting the game versus Kent Spitfires last July which attracted a crowd of more than 1,000 spectators who saw the visitors win by 140 runs.

Suffolk head coach Andy Northcote, who is also club professional at Woolpit CC, said:

"Woolpit are once again honoured to host the showcase game in 2023.

"The Kent fixture was a huge success for the club and county, and Surrey can expect to be hosted equally well. Our attitude towards making this day a fun festival of cricket and relevant to all corners of Suffolk cricket runs true for this coming year. Tickets will go on sale shortly.”

Alec Stewart, Director of Cricket at Surrey CCC, said: “We’re looking forward to playing Suffolk next season as part of our preparations for the One Day Cup competition. It will be valuable experience for our squad and our first visit to Woolpit CC which I’m sure we will enjoy."
