On Sunday, before the Steelbacks host Glamorgan in the Friends Life t20, there will be a Kevin Curran Memorial Match, which will see the Northamptonshire Legends take on a Gloucestershire Legends side in a 12 over match.
The game will begin at 11.00am with gates opening at 10.00am; advance tickets cost £13 which includes both games. The game will raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
Kevin Curran was a former Northamptonshire and Zimbabwe all-rounder who sadly passed away last year. The organiser of the Memorial match, Alan Fordham, has since been raising money for the British Heart Foundation which included running the London marathon earlier this year.
There will be an array of former Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire stars taking the field including Allan Lamb, David Capel, current Northamptonshire head coach David Ripley and Gloucestershire’s Jack Russell.
The Memorial match will make for a brilliant pre-cursor for the main event as the Steelbacks take on Glamorgan in a crucial Friends Life t20 game. Glamorgan have made a strong start to their Friends Life t20 campaign opening the competition with 3 wins from 3, leaving them top of the group.
