Notts' Second XI fell to a nine wicket defeat at the hands of Northamptonshire on the final day of proceedings at Campbell Park. 

Starting the day on with a 24-run advantage on 56-1, Notts lost their first wicket of the day soon after the start of play. 

Chris Gibson (31) added just three to his overnight score before he edged Jack White to Ben Coddington at first slip, who parried the ball into the grasp of Simon Kerrigan alongside him.

The visitors quickly found themselves three down when new batsman Jarred Lysaught’s short stay at the crease was also ended by White.

Ben Compton made his way to the middle looking to recreate the ton he made in the first innings but Andrew Neal had ideas of his own when he snatched two wickets in the 33rd over to turn the tide in Northamptonshire’s favour. 

Firstly Compton (22) nicked one into the gloves of Tom Keast, and shortly after Ben Martindale was sent packing for a duck. 

Adeel Shafique and Lyndon James stood firm for the rest of the session as they looked to stem the tide, sending the visitors into the lunch break on 177-5. 

But the break in play proved pivotal as Northamptonshire picked up the wickets of James (55) and Jack Potticary (1) for just nine runs. 

Shafique would depart next for 58, but Kashif Ali backed up his first-innings century with an unbeaten 41 before Notts declared on 253-9.

Northants required 224 to win from 40 overs, but only reached 34 before Emilio Gay nicked Lysaught to Potticary.

But Ben Coddington (69*) and Ben Curran (130*) were able to compile a decisive 150-run partnership.

The victory was confirmed when Coddington his his tenth boundary to take the hosts to 226-1 and a nine-wicket victory.


There are two further opportunities to catch the Outlaws in T20 action at Trent Bridge this summer, with the next opportunity coming as part of a double-header on Sunday 25 August. The Outlaws' clash against Yorkshire Vikings will be preceded by Loughborough Lightning v Lancashire Thunder in the Kia Super League.
