MAGOFFIN: Steve receives County Cap05-Mar-2013
Sussex’s overseas star Steve Magoffin became Sussex’s 135th capped player yesterday when he was awarded with his County Cap.
He received his cap from skipper Ed Joyce as the players returned for pre-season training this week ahead of their trip to Dubai later on in the month.
The 33 year-old Australian had a superb debut season at Hove, taking 57 wickets in the LV=County Championship averaging only slightly over 20, with his best of 7 for 34 coming in his debut for the County away at Lancashire back in April.
He also made some vital contributions with the bat, scoring 363 runs at an average of 22.68, and was named Player of the Year at the 2012 Awards Ceremony.
