Worcestershire Seconds returned to Championship action tomorrow when they take on their Lancashire counterparts at Southport.

Coach Kevin Sharp has named a 12 man squad which includes senior batsmen Alex Gidman and Alexei Kervezee.

Gidman scored 50 and 91 not out in the Seconds last match in the competition against Derbyshire at Flagge Meadow while Kervezee hit 69 and 52 in the same game.

Opener Ollie Westbury will be looking to maintain the form he showed when scoring a half century for the England Development Programme Invitational X1 against Australia Under-19s at Loughborough.

The Seconds are currently lying in mid-table in the Championship and achieved an impressive innings victory against Yorkshire at Barnt Green.

The two teams will also meet on Thursday in a Second Eleven Trophy match at Emirates Old Trafford.
