Re: Holden on loan to Northants

I am happy about this move, as it is surely more beneficial for Max Holden and therefore for Middlesex for him to be playing for Northamptonshire 1st XI against the likes of Durham, Nottinghamshire and Sussex as opposed to playing for our 2nd XI.

12 months ago, I anticipated that it was highly likely that his 1st XI debut would come in 2016. However, the fact there weren’t many instances of those already in the side losing form or fitness or becoming unavailable meant that chance never came, plus of course the team performances meant we didn’t have many dead matches in any of the three competitions. Therefore, it is great news that his overdue introduction into 1st XI cricket is set to happen in 2017, albeit at Northants. Hopefully he will return from his loan in an excellent position to push for selection for our 1st XI.
