ENGLAND’S world-beating women’s cricket team, including Louth star Arran Brindle, will take on a Royal Air Force Cricket Association XI as part of a local charity effort.
East Lindsey Live will see the two sides play a 20-over charity game at Louth Cricket Ground in London Road in August.
Proceeds will go to Breast Cancer Care and the RAF Benevolent Fund.
The match at Louth CC is likely to be competitive and fast-paced as the RAF XI are the Armed Forces T20 cricket champions for the second year running, beating the Navy and Army in a triangular 20/20 tournament at the Lords.
East Lindsey District Council leader Coun Doreen Stephenson said: “Lincolnshire is known as Bomber County and England player Arran Brindle is one of East Lindsey’s more famous residents.
“We’re very much looking forward to a great day and what should be an entertaining fixture and a highlight of the East Lindsey Live programme,”
A fundraising event after the game is also being planned – details on the web: www.eastlindseylive.org .
