Player of the Month: June Nominees

Cotton was the county’s leading wicket taker in June. The tall paceman claimed six wickets in two Royal London One-Day Cup games, including career-best figures of 4-43 versus Worcestershire at the start of the month.

The 22-year-old enjoyed more success against Worcestershire in the Specsavers County Championship, picking up six wickets in the match at The 3aaa County Ground, with season-best figures of 4-28 in the first innings.

Cotton took a total of 17 wickets in June across all three competitions.

Billy scored a total of 346 runs across all competitions in June, at an average of 57.66.

It was in the longest format he enjoyed most success, scoring 237 runs in two innings this month – which included a career-best 204 against Worcestershire. He now has a total of 597 first-class runs in 2016, eight most in Division Two.

The 27-year-old was also in fine form in List A cricket, with knocks of 61 and 42 in the Royal London One-Day Cup as the Falcons went top of the North Group at the halfway stage.

Wayne Madsen

Madsen enjoyed a successful month with the bat in June, amassing 448 runs at an average of 56.
