A trio of Suffolk cricketers were awarded their county caps during the final Unicorns Championship match of the season, writes Nick Garnham.
Wicket-keeper and batsman Adam Mansfield was appointed as Suffolk’s youngest-ever captain prior to the start of the season.
Mansfield, who made his debut in 2011, led the side to second place in the Eastern Division of the Unicorns Championship.
Jaik Micklebugh, who signed as Suffolk’s professional this season following his release by Essex after nine years with the first-class county, received his cap after an outstanding summer with the bat.
Opening batsman Mickleburgh scored more than 1,000 runs in the Championship and Trophy, in which Suffolk reached the quarter-finals.

Ex-Essex all-rounder Michael Comber, who first played for Suffolk in 2010, was the third player to be capped.
Comber took seven for 59 in Suffolk’s ten-wicket win against Northumberland this season, but was unable to bowl seam thereafter due to a back injury.
