Nottinghamshire will start their competitive 2018 season with a trip to face Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford in Specsavers County Championship Division One.

With the Club back in the top flight of four-day cricket after last season’s promotion from Division Two, they will visit the Red Rose County between Friday 13 April and Monday 16 April.

Two further away games will follow at Yorkshire (starting Friday 20 April) and Worcestershire (starting Friday 27 April) to allow the completion of building work at Trent Bridge on the Radcliffe Road side of the ground.

The first County Championship home match for the Green and Golds will see the Club host Hampshire, starting on Friday 4 May, while the match at home to Worcestershire, which starts on Monday 25 June, will be a day-night floodlit game.

Captained by Steven Mullaney, Notts will finish their four-day season with three home matches in a row as matches with Yorkshire (starting Tuesday 4 September), Essex (starting Monday 10 September) and Somerset (starting Monday 24 September) conclude the county season.

Meanwhile, the Notts Outlaws kick off the defence of their 50-over Royal London One-Day Cup title when they visit Lancashire on Thursday 17 May, while their first home game in the competition will be at the north Nottinghamshire outground of Welbeck as Northamptonshire visit on Sunday 20 May.

Play-offs, should Notts contest a match at that stage, will be played on Thursday June 14, with semi-finals on Sunday 17 and Monday 18 June and the final at Lord’s on Saturday 30 June.

The Club’s 2018 T20 Blast fixtures were announced last night where the Outlaws, as defending champions, host the side they beat in the 2017 final, the Birmingham Bears, in the competition’s very first round of matches on Wednesday 4 July.

Three Friday night home games are scheduled against Leicestershire Foxes (20 July), Lancashire Lightning (27 July) and Yorkshire Vikings (10 August) while the Outlaws’ group games conclude against Yorkshire at Emerald Headingley on Friday 17 August.

Notts visit derby rivals Derbyshire Falcons at the 3aaa County Ground on Friday 13 July, with the return match at Trent Bridge on Thursday 2 August.

Should the Outlaws get there, the quarter-finals will be played between Thursday 23 and Sunday 26 August, while Finals Day is Saturday 15 September.
