Former skipper Tom Huggins returns to the Victory Ground on Sunday for the first time since leaving Bury St Edmunds at the end of last season.

Huggins, who left to join Sudbury as player-coach, will captain Suffolk in their Unicorns Trophy Group Two game against Cambridgeshire (11am) as the county look to build on their victory over Bedfordshire.

Suffolk won by 35 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method, with Scotland World Cup star Kyle Coetzer scoring an undefeated 64 on his debut and Jack Beaumont taking three wickets.

Former Bury St Edmunds bowler Matt Hunn, who is now on a dual registration with first-class county Kent, is expected to lead the Suffolk attack.

“We had a good team performance on Sunday led by Kyle Coetzer and Jack Beaumont, and we’re confident going into Sunday’s match against Cambridgeshire as we are at our strongest with Matt Hunn available,” said Huggins.

“The next two games are crucial to our one-day season, and having the strength of squad we have for Sunday’s match is a massive boost for us.”
