Cricket: Talented young guns get a taste of the county action
LINCOLNSHIRE CCC are geared up for their Minor Counties Eastern Division match against Cumberland this weekend.
The clash gets underway at Furness Cricket Club, Barrow on Sunday.
Jim Morgan of Grimsby Town CC, who was unavailable for the first match at Sleaford against Northumberland, comes into the squad replacing his club-mate Harry Warwick who was 12th man at Sleaford.
That match saw Lincolnshire take ten points from a rain affected game, which puts them in third position in the Eastern Division table.

Cleethorpes spinner Harry Clewett, pictured, made his championship debut in the draw.
With the second day ruined by rain, a result was always unlikely despite the best efforts of the captains.
Clewett had little chance to bowl in the match, but took three catches.
Warwick performed as 12th man for both sides as a Northumberland player injured his hand as he tried to stop a shot by Lincolnshire's Akhil Patel.
Patel, the younger brother of England's Samit, looked likely to score a maiden century on debut but, when he blasted a shot near the Grimsby youngster, he was well caught and dismissed for 91.
A rather sheepish Warwick left the field, but Lincolnshire coach Mark Fell was quick to reassure the Grimsby player that his instinctive reaction was completely natural.
Lincs squad to face Cumberland: Birch (captain), Andrews, Bansal, Burford (wkt), Cheer, Clewett, Dowman, Darke, Houston, Morgan, Patel, Shepherd.
