Let’s hope the weather holds off, at least around Timperly tomorrow as the Cricket Club host probably their biggest game ever.
England’s 2005 ashes stars, Mathhew Hoggard, Steve Harmison and Simon Jones will be amongst the stars of the game in an England Masters Team which will be taking on the local side in a twenty twenty game.
Chairman Adam Horan said ‘We have been in discussions with Neil Fairbrother and Stephen Newall from The Professional Cricketers Association and agreed a deal which will see 11 Ex-England Cricketers take on a Timperley Invitational XI in a Twenty20 game’
The club are also hosting a corporate lunch in a marquee on the ground which the players will attend and this will act as the main fundraiser for the day and are aiming to have around 1,500 spectators on the ground to create a great atmosphere.
Also appearing for the England team will be Adam Hollioake, Paul Nixon, Phil Defreitas and Dean Headley.
The game starts at 4.30 TICKETS
