Worcestershire Seconds will return to Championship action next week against visiting Derbyshire Seconds at Halesowen CC.

The June 26-28 fixture was originally scheduled to take place at Blackfinch New Road.

It has been moved to Halesowen due to flooding at the County’s headquarters.

Halesowen compete in the Birmingham and District Premier League and play their matches at Seth Somers Park.

Their current captain is former Worcestershire batsman Alexei Kervezee.

The Seconds will be keen to return to playing after a month where their programme has been severely curtailed by the weather and abandonment of a four-day game with Gloucestershire at Clifton College because of a dangerous pitch.
