Martyn Moxon and Jon Lewis today welcomed the newest addition to the team - Pro for a Day competition winner, Alastair Gibson.

Alastair, from Morpeth, won Durham County Cricket Club's unique competition to play in the Durham side against Lashings World XI next Wednesday. He will play a full and active part in the match by bowling, batting and fielding.

Alastair is looking forward to experiencing a day as a professional cricketer. He said: "I entered the competition because I thought it would be a good opportunity to experience a day as a professional cricketer. I'm really looking forward to experiencing the whole atmosphere of the day and playing against some cricket legends."
