Teddington face tough league start
Teddington face a tough assignment on the opening day of the Middlesex County League Premier Division season next summer and will do it without skipper Joe Austin at the helm.
The 25-year-old, who hit an unbeaten 94 to go with Nick Gubbins' 122 as his side lifted the Middlesex County Cup last month with a 171-run win over Hornesy, is set to step down after only a season in charge due to work commitments.
James Keightley is expected to replace him after the Bushy Park outfit, runners-up in five of the last six seasons, finished only sixth in the table behind near neighbours Twickenham and Richmond.
Teddington will start next summer with a trip to defending league champions Hampstead on May 10 before hosting Carlos Nunes' Twickenham the following week.
Richmond start their season at 10-time champions Ealing before hosting Finchley, while Twickenham welcome Brondesbury to the Green on the opening weekend.
