    Batsman Luke Wells beats three other contenders to pick up his second Division Two Player of the Week award after notching up 155 in Sussex's win over Worcestershire

    RESULTS

    • Luke Wells - 31%
    • Max Holden - 28%
    • Paul Coughlin - 24%
    • Billy Godleman - 17%

    The contenders:

    Luke Wells - Sussex
    155 v Worcestershire

    A little under two weeks after scoring a career-best 258, Luke Wells was back out in the middle at Hove, obdurately batting away an unbeaten Worcestershire bowling unit. Going on to score 155, Wells – ably supported by Harry Finch and Stiaan van Zyl – helped Sussex set a mammoth first innings total of 579/8d. There was no way back for Worcestershire who lost their first match of the season by an innings and seven runs.

    Billy Godleman - Derbyshire
    121 v Nottinghamshire

    It’s the hope that hurts the must, and that’s exactly what Billy Godleman gave the Derbyshire supporters, whose wait for a Championship win ticks over to 672 days and counting, after his excellent century put them in position to beat local rivals Nottinghamshire. The only player to make triple figures in the match, Derbyshire skip Godleman batted for almost six hours only for rain to thwart his side 25 runs short.

    Max Holden - Northamptonshire
    124 v Durham

    Northants secured a vital win to keep their hopes of promotion from Division Two alive thanks to the base set by Max Holden’s maiden first-class hundred. Dropped twice in the field, Holden, on loan from Middlesex, knuckled down and ensured they took a 172-run first innings lead.

    Paul Coughlin - Durham
    10-133 v Northamptonshire

    That the result against Northants went down to the penultimate ball of the match was in no small part due to Paul Coughlin’s excellent 10-wicket haul. Having taken a maiden five-for in the first innings with an economy of 1.81 from his 27 overs, the Durham-born quick bowled straight through the Northants second innings picking up another five-wicket haul, including two wickets in the final over, to leave onlookers on the edge of their seats.
