Gloucestershire to face Herefordshire in T20 showcase fixture

28 May 2024

Gloucestershire will take on Herefordshire in two National Counties showcase matches on Wednesday 12th June.

The double-header will see Herefordshire NCCA XI play a Gloucestershire XI in two T20 matches at Eastnor Cricket Club in Eastnor, Herefordshire. With the first match starting at 10am and the second match at 3pm, the matchday will be a celebration of National Counties cricket and perfect for the whole family to attend.

As well as two thrilling games of T20 cricket to look forward to, the NCCA showcase day will include a BBQ and a bar and is available to attend for only £5 per person. Gates will open at 9am and tickets can be purchased on the day.

Speaking of his excitement ahead of the T20 double-header, Richard Cox, General Manager at Herefordshire Cricket, commented: “We have always endeavoured to have strong links with our nearby neighbours and this matchday will allow us to grow our relationship with Gloucestershire.

“We gave Worcestershire a good run for their money in 2022 and last year’s rained off game with Glamorgan was nicely poised, so we look forward to hopefully repeating the same in 2024 when we take on Gloucestershire. Given it’s the only major fixture taking place on Wednesday 12th June we hope to many faces new and old at the delightful Eastnor Cricket Club.’’

Taking place during Gloucestershire’s busy Vitality Blast schedule, the double-header will provide Mark Alleyne and his players with extra game time as they look to mount a challenge to qualify for the knockout stages of the T20 competition.

Head Coach at Gloucestershire Cricket, Mark Alleyne, added: “We’re delighted to get some extra exposure in the T20 playing period with a trip up the M5 to play Herefordshire. It’s a game we are all looking forward to as we seek to continue to grow the game with our neighbours.

“We’re excited to make even greater connections with Herefordshire’s performance and pathway programmes and at the same time, are looking forward to being involved in two great games of cricket at what promises to be a fabulous family occasion.”
