All at CH are delighted that Old Blue Stuart Whittingham made his debut in the County Cricket Championship for Sussex against Derbyshire in Derby on Sunday 8 May.
His debut for the first team came on the back of some recent excellent performances in the 2nd XI championship where he took 14 wickets in the last two matches against Worcestershire and Somerset. He had a successful day as he ended with figures of 11-1-38-2. He might have had a third wicket but for a simple chance being spilled. He was very pleased with his efforts and was keen to add to his haul in the second innings.
Two interesting facts : He is the first Old Blue to play in the County Championship since John Snow in the 70s. He was the only player on either side to be born within the boundaries of Derbyshire … and he was playing for Sussex.
We are very proud of him and wish him well.
