Skegness to host amateur cricket final

EXCITEMENT is mounting as Skegness braces itself to host the cream of the region’s amateur cricketers.

The Skegness club has been selected to host the ECB regional T/20 final at its Richmond Drive home on Sunday, August 5.

Skegness Cricket Club will welcome teams from the South Yorkshire League and the Yorkshire ECB Premier League to the Area Finals of the ECB T20 competition.

Bracebridge Heath, the current Lincolnshire champions, will represent the host county in the three-way contest against sides from Treeton (South Yorkshire League) and Barnsley of the Yorkshire League.

The winner will go through to the regional final.

Bracebridge will be first up at 10am when they play Treeton and the loser of this match stays on to play Barnsley – whose squad includes Jon Trower, a former Cleethorpes and Lincolnshire Minor Counties player at 1pm. The remaining match takes place at 4pm.

Spectators are very welcome to this feast of cricket. There is ample parking around the Skegness ground and refreshments will be available all day.
