As the country readies itself for one of the most exciting summers of cricket ever seen, Radlett Cricket Club is busy preparing for a special summer of its own, with the club’s Brunton Memorial Ground set to play host to Middlesex in all three domestic formats this season.

With Middlesex’s Lord’s home unavailable for large parts of this summer due to the famous old ground hosting the inaugural England vs Ireland Test match, the Ashes Test and several ICC World Cup clashes, Radlett has come to the fore as the county's out-ground of choice, and this year, on top of hosting another List-A clash for the county, will also make its first-class and Vitality Blast T20 debuts as a cricketing venue.

Radlett's landmark year kicks off on Wednesday when the ground will host its seventh One-Day county encounter - with Somerset the latest side to visit the picturesque Hertfordshire ground to take on Middlesex in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Under the new stewardship of coaching duo Stuart Law and Nic Pothas, Middlesex will be looking to continue the recent on-field improvements seen in the 50-over format and build on a strong record at the ground which has seen them win four of the six List-A matches they've played there to date.

The home side will be buoyed by the availability of new overseas signing Ross Taylor who landed at Lord’s this week and is set to feature at Radlett. With more than 1,000 runs for his country in the last 14 months at an average of 97, Taylor joins Middlesex in blistering form, having risen to number three in the ICC’s world ODI batsmen rankings.

Middlesex will then return to Radlett between Sunday, June 16 and Wednesday, June 19, when Glamorgan are the visitors for an historic four-day Specsavers County Championship clash, which will see the Brunton Memorial Ground become the latest ground to receive first-class status.

“It is a real privilege for an out-ground to be selected to host a first-class county match and we are delighted that Radlett has made it onto a short list of club grounds that Middlesex has selected for this honour” said Middlesex’s managing director or cricket Angus Fraser.

"The demand on Lord’s means that Middlesex is always heavily reliant on playing at out-grounds when the Home of Cricket is unavailable, and it is because of summer’s like this one that the club and Radlett invested in improving its facilities back in 2012. The fact that the club continues to play first XI matches at Radlett today is testament to how valuable that investment was.

“Our thanks go to everyone at Radlett for playing host to us this summer in each of the three competition formats and we look forward to achieving some success there this year.”

Radlett's trio of county fixtures will be completed on Sunday, August 11, when Gloucestershire are the visitors, taking on Middlesex in the Vitality Blast.

With Middlesex’s sights set firmly on securing promotion from Division Two of the County Championship this summer and qualifying for the knockout stages of both white-ball competitions, a big summer lies ahead, which Radlett will undoubtedly be playing a major part in.
