The Professional Cricketers Association (PCA) are bringing a full team of Ex England cricketers to play at Studley Royal on Friday 4th August.
The Ex England squad includes players like Steve Harmison, Matthew Hoggard and Mark Ramprakash with the final XI yet to be announced by the PCA, and will play a Twenty20 match between 4.00pm and 7.00pm against, York Senior League Premier Division side, Studley Royal.
Club Secretary Olly Schofield told us ‘This will only be part of the day, as in the morning there will be a Junior competition, followed by a marquee lunch, then the match, followed at night by a disco. The whole event starts at 10.00am and continues to midnight, but everyone can choose which part they wish to attend with the obvious main attraction being the match between 4.00pm and 7.00pm. There will be regular Twitter feed updates, so keep looking out for details’.
There will be food and drink available all day, along with other activites for the children.
Club Chairman Ken Coad said ‘This is a very exciting venture for us, but we have had to make a very large financial commitment to the PCA, so we are looking to the whole community to support the day, so that hopefully we can make this an annual event in the summer calender’.
Current Yorkshire player Ben Coad was a junior player at the Club and still remains very involved at the Club says ‘ I am just starting out on my professional career but this is an opportunity to see legends of the game for the first time in North Yorkshire. It should be a great day for the Juniors in the morning and for the players and spectaters in the afternoon’.
