Off the Field: Gloucestershire – in conjunction with Sporting Memories Network (SMN) – will be the first County Cricket Club to host a “Cricket Memories Match.”  There will be a gazebo set up in the ground where fans can go along and ‘donate’ their memoires by either filling in a postcard with a cricket memory or by loading it up on-line.

SMN supporter, John Inverdale, has already shared his own of memory of sport in the West Country – with recollections of watching the legendary former Gloucestershire all-rounder, Mike Procter.  Read John’s “Proccie” memory here and add a few of your own 

The above is part of our work with Sporting Memories Network (SMN) who support people with dementia by hosting weekly sport reminiscence groups at the Bristol Pavilion to help reduce social isolation.  This match is the first of three taking place this season: the others are at Cheltenham on 18 July and in Bristol on 25 August when Gloucestershire host England v India in a One Day International.
