SUFFOLK will take a look at two players from outside the county when they face Essex 2nd XI in their traditional curtain-raiser friendly at Billericay CC tomorrow.

Mark Lawson, a 27-year-old leg spinner who has had spells with Yorkshire, Middlesex, Derbyshire and Kent, plays alongside Archie Ogden, an 18-year-old left-arm seamer from Rotherham CC.

They are among 13 players – eleven will bat and eleven will field – named for the 50 overs-a-side match, starting at 11am.

The Suffolk side also includes promising youngsters Matt Hunn (Bury St Edmunds), Adam Mansfield, James Poulson (both Sudbury) and Ben Shepperson (Woolpit).

All four have already played for Suffolk at Minor Counties Championship level in the past couple of seasons.
