After three 3-day games against county opposition Leeds Bradford get down to the ‘bread & butter’ part of the season tomorrow (Friday 17th) with their first game against university opposition.
Exeter University will be visiting Weetwood as the Yellows play their opening BUCS game in the Premier A Division. These are 50 over games played with a pink ball and the usual one-day fielding restrictions.
The division contains the 6 MCCU centres together with Exeter & Solent Universities – the latter being coached by Ex-Leeds Bradford skipper, Richard Browning.
Exeter showed their strength by reaching the final last year, losing to Loughborough. They played their first game of the campaign today (Thursday 16th) but lost to Durham MCCU by 8 wickets.
The game starts at 11.00 am. All supporters welcome and we’ll be tweeting regular updates on @leedsmccu.
