England Women’s cricket captain Charlotte Edwards and Arran Brindle will launch the sale of tickets for Louth’s first ever international match with local students on Thursday.
England Women will take on Pakistan Women in a one-day international at Louth’s London Road cricket ground on Monday, July 1.
Overall 1,000 tickets for the hotly-anticipated match will go on sale on Thursday, April 18.
But on Thursday captain Edwards and Louth all-rounder Arran Brindle will mark the launch with students from Cordeaux Academy along with East Lindsey District Council leader Councillor Doreen Stephenson and Councillor Adam Grist, ELDC’s portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism.
Schools across East Lindsey will receive a total of 900 free tickets to the game, giving young people in the district an opportunity to see Lincolnshire host its first ever international cricket match.
“England versus Pakistan is one of the keenest contested matches in world cricket and bringing the match to Louth is a mouthwatering prospect,” said Coun Grist Grist.
“East Lindsey District Council has worked very hard over recent years to highlight the important role sport plays in people’s health and wellbeing and thanks to our links with the English Cricket Board we’ve been able to bring a one-day cricket international to Lincolnshire for the first time.
“This fixture shows just how much England’s Womens Cricket Team enjoy coming to East Lindsey.
“We are sure that people from across Lincolnshire support this fixture, all keen to see a highly competitive game of cricket.”
