Tickets for Surrey showcase match on sale

December 12, 2022

TICKETS are now on sale for Suffolk’s NCCA Showcase match versus Surrey.

Suffolk will face the reigning LV= Insurance county champions in a 50-over fixture at Woolpit Cricket Club on Sunday, July 30th, start 11am.

Andy Northcote, who is one of the organisers as well as Suffolk’s head coach, said: “Woolpit Cricket Club are absolutely delighted to present the Suffolk CCC versus Surrey CCC NCCA Showcase game.

“This is the second time the club have ever hosted a first-class county and it is sure to be a spectacular event, just like last year’s fixture.

“Kent Spitfires went on to win the Royal London Cup competition after playing Suffolk – can Surrey do the same?”

A crowd of more than 1,000 attended last year’s Showcase fixture which saw a total of 722 runs scored as Kent Spitfires won by 140 runs despite a spirited display by Suffolk.

It was the first time a first-class county had played in Suffolk since Glamorgan visited Bury St Edmunds in the Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy in 2005.

Northcote said Woolpit CC plan to create a carnival atmosphere similar to last year, with a brass band, local businesses showcasing what they do and hot and cold food wagons.

“There will be a softball cricket tournament between innings on the outfield and, of course, there will be a bar available to purchase those much-needed beverages of choice!” added Northcote.

General Admission – Under-18s must be accompanied by a paying and supervising adult, maximum of 1 Adult to 4 Under-18s
