Sam Northeast Stars In Royal London Cup Win For Hampshire!
Hampshire posted the biggest-ever total in a final at Lord’s as they beat Kent by 61 runs to win the One-Day Cup. It was the county’s first victory at Lord’s since 2012, with Rilee Rossouw’s 125 helping them amass 330-7. Former Kent captain and Paragon client, Sam Northeast also made an unbeaten 75, while Joe Denly claimed 4-57 with the ball.
Sam joined Hampshire from Kent back in February 2018 and has already established himself as a key player in Hampshire’s side. His 58 against Yorkshire in the semi-final was crucial in his side’s route to Lord’s, before his 75* helping his side take massive strides to victory. Sam hit 8 boundaries, including 2 maximum’s in his 60 ball innings.
After the game, Sam said “It feels great, the guys played really, 330 was a massive total to chase, but I’m over the moon to win! It was more nervous than I’d ever been going into a game, so I’m just glad to be on the winning side!”
