It’s time for some Showcase Game action

Showcase promo

Staffordshire will pit their wits against first-class opposition once again on Sunday, July 21.

Staffs welcome Warwickshire to Knypersley for the NCCA Showcase Game fixture in a 50-over per side fixture.

All NCCA sides take on professional opponents in a season – and Warwickshire provide new opponents for Staffordshire this summer.

Staffordshire played Leicestershire last summer and managed to claim their maiden first-class scalp as they beat the Foxes under the Duckworth/Lewis method.

This year’s clash at Knypersley is another fantastic chance for local cricket followers to see pro players up close and personal as they continue their preparations for the Metro Bank competition.

Tickets are now on sale for the match, which starts at 11am.

Staffordshire members will gain free admission on the day on production of their membership card.
