Northamptonshire Player Number: 492
Josh will remember 2016 as the season which saw him named ‘Man of the Match’ in a domestic T20 final for the second time in his career, as a knock of 80 from 48 balls (his fifth half-century of the campaign) paved the way for the Steelbacks’ triumph over Durham at Edgbaston. He celebrated by signing a new three-year deal with the club. The son of a Leicestershire stalwart, Russell Cobb, Josh crossed one of county cricket’s great divides – from Grace Road to Wantage Road – in 2015 and proceeded to make telling contributions in all formats for his new club. In addition to his destructive batting and tidy off-spin, he is one of the most brilliant fielders in the county game - just ask Sri Lankan great Mahela Jayawardene after THAT catch in the 2015 T20 quarter-final down at Hove!

The Help for Heroes (H4H) Cricket Club was formed in 2013 from the germ of an idea from a member of the Charity Wellbeing staff.

The team played a number of games during that summer, including an inaugural game against the Northamptonshire County Disability Team. Our team comprises of both men and women, the majority of who are now veterans.
Northants have been set 218 to win and increase their chances of gaining promotion to Division 1, and at the close had reached 42 for 1, with Rob Newton and Simon Kerrigan at the crease.
