By Rob Scanlon - Durham CCC Head of Media
Second eleven coach Alastair Maiden has named his squad for Durham's final pre-season friendly match.
Before the first championship fixture gets underway early next month, Gordon Muchall will captain the side against a combined Essex/Kent team in a three-day contest that begins on Monday at Billericay (11am start)
Durham are looking to bounce back from a six wicket reverse against Scotland A last week and the 12-man squad contains seven players who have first team experience.
Paul Coughlin, who played in the first team's opening championship match of the season against Somerset, is included in the travelling party along with the in-form Ryan Pringle, Jamie Harrison, Gavin Main, Stuart Poynter and spinner Ryan Buckley.
