End the summer with a blast as ex-International cricket stars come to Louth


What better place to watch ex-International cricket stars this summer than Louth’s home of cricket – The Pavilion, London Road?

Following last year’s Women’s International cricket match between England and Pakistan, this year the Professional Cricketers’ Association Masters’ v RAF Charity Cricket Match will take place on Wednesday, September 3 at the Louth venue. The T20 match will start at 2pm.

East Lindsey District Council’s Portfolio Holder with responsibility for Sport, Councillor Adam Grist, said: “This is another great coup for the District and shows that East Lindsey is becoming known as a venue for great sporting events – especially with regards to cricket.

“We look forward to welcoming top players from both the International cricketing arena and the RAF in what is expected to be a hotly contested game. There are some big names in cricket already confirmed so it is sure to be one of the summer’s must-see events.”

Players already confirmed include first-class run-scorer Mark Ramprakash, fast-bowling menace Stephen Harmison and Jamaican-born speed demon Devon Malcolm. Please note that players may be subject to change.

The date marks the 75th anniversary of the start of the Second World War, and is therefore a particularly poignant time for the RAF who will be taking on the ex-international cricketers in the battle for victory.

The match will be hosted by the District Council in partnership with Onlincolnshire and The Brackenborough Hotel.

Tickets for general admission cost £10 in advance (with under 16s free when attending with a paying adult).

There are also corporate packages available for tables of ten people including lunch, refreshments and afternoon tea with a player of your choice. Packages start at £500 per table.

Tickets are expected to sell fast so book now by calling 07827 873026 or via www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/Cricket. For more information on corporate packages please contact culture@e-lindsey.gov.uk
