Start time: 5.30pm
Supporters? coaches the Salutation Inn at 3pm and the Dixon Gate car park at 3.30pm. Seats cost ?12.
The all-rounder is named in the squad to take on Leicestershire Foxes in the first match of this year?s Twenty20 Cup and our Director of Cricket is confident he will have a big impact.
Said Newell: "Paul was out of touch with his bowling and was also struggling with a side injury so we decided to let him have a rest for a while.
"He wanted to keep on playing cricket and has been working his socks off for the Seconds in the past fortnight.
"Wayne Noon has told me he is timing the ball extremely well and looks in great nick with the bat. His primary role this week will be as a batsman but he also provides us with a valuable option as a bowler too.
"He?s a massive player for us in all forms of the cricket and someone who thrives on the big occasion. I?m confident he will produce some big performances for us this week."
Newell names a youthful squad for the tournament, and includes Will Smith in the 12.
Smith has enjoyed a terrific start to the season with Durham UCCE and is set to make his first appearance of the summer for the Outlaws, where his fielding and confidence with the bat will be valuable.
Seamer Greg Smith replaces the injured Ryan Sidebottom, who had been earmarked for a crucial role in the tournament.
