Media Day starts season with a flourish

The squad had team shots taken in each of their three kits, provided by new kit supplier, Cotton Traders.  Ebac and Premium People Group had been announced as County Championship and One Day Partners respectively prior to the start of proceeding s and they join Emirates Airlines, who are the Club’s Twenty20 Cup Partners, as valued sponsors.

The team also had to be filmed for their profile shots for use on the new replay screen and you can see the results at the Friends Provident Trophy match at Riverside on Sunday 3 May when we play Surrey Brown Caps.

Pre season interviews were the order of the day and the players certainly had plenty to say! Will Smith, Stephen Harmison, Graham Onions, Liam Plunkett, Dale Benkenstein, Ian Blackwell and Geoff Cook all chatted to the media about Durham’s plans for 2009, some of which will be featured on the Durham website over the next few days.

The team depart from Riverside tomorrow morning ahead of their match against the MCC which starts on Thursday.  The team for this match will be announced tomorrow so keep an eye on the website to see who will feature in Durham’s opening match.
