Chris Read (Notts’ captain, on his Trent Bridge farewell)
“It wasn’t the ending to the game that we desired and I think all through the four days we have been outplayed, so that is a little bit disappointing and leaves us with plenty of work to go on for the next couple of games.
“I don’t think we coped on the first day as well as we have done all year, we know here that under leaden skies there can be movement through the air and off the pitch. For the majority of this season we have dealt with that better than the opposition and I felt that in both innings we didn’t deal with it as well as we should have done.
"My guard of honour was unexpected but very much appreciated. It was a little bit embarrassing walking out but I was just desperate not to get out first ball. Had we been going out today and won the game I’d have perhaps been a little bit more emotional, knowing that the job was nearly done. As it is, we’ve put ourselves in a scrap for the last couple of matches, so it’s back to business as usual.
“I’ve enjoyed every trophy we’ve won over the years but we’ve never picked one up here at Trent Bridge, so for me, every time I go out on the pitch I have had a great time. I’ll remember the dressing room more than anything and the players that have gone through there and the friends that I have made and the great time that I have had playing this sport.”
