Northamptonshire county cricketer Andrew Hall has reached an astonishing career milestone by surpassing 10,000 first class runs during the recent LV= County Championship match against Lancashire.

During a match that saw Hall hit five fours and reach his half century in 127 balls, the South African born Northants all-rounder has joined a rare group of people to record over 10,000 first class runs.

Northamptonshire, who play in Division Two of the LV= County Championship were ultimately beaten by the visiting side but Hall’s run tally was enough to see him surpass the incredible batting milestone.

Commenting on the achievement, Northamptonshire county cricketer Andrew Hall said:

“The county championship continues to be a very competitive competition, so to be able to reach this milestone is something I am incredibly proud of. We have a great squad at Northamptonshire and if my contribution of runs can help us this season, that is the most important thing.”

“To hit the all-important runs to see me past the 10,000 mark at home in front of the Northants fans was very special indeed.”

Claire Jeromson, Head of Sponsorship at LV=, added:

“Reaching milestones like this just highlights the talent that’s playing in the LV= County Championship and Andrews’s achievement is well worth acknowledging. Each season we are treated to some very special moments, and this is definitely one of those.”
