We visit Northampton this week. We first played them in 1905 when they were admitted to the County Championship. In May, the two sides drew at Southampton and in the return match in July Northants won by 231 runs. Hampshire were a poor side and finished bottom of the table for the fourth consecutive season but in the next few years the first great group of professionals arrived – Mead, Brown, Kennedy and Newman – and Hampshire have only finished last once since then – in 1980.
