From midday on Saturday 15th April we have our annual PCC CLUB DAY. The Ploughmans CC Club Day 2023 is in memory of Nasser Khan.
The format of the match will be a T20 Test match.
The President's XI will be lead by Max Wright and Simon Crane and The Chairman's XI will be lead by Tom Glynne-Jones and Benny Cobbett. This is one that you do not want to miss!
There is plenty more to play for than just bragging rights, as the Captain and Vice-Captain of the winning team will be presented with the Nasser Khan Trophy at the conclusion of the match. This trophy will be a one off and remain in the DSG Trophy cabinet for many years to come.
The toss will take place at 12:30. Prior to the first ball being bowled, at 12:45 the trophy will be announced and President Robert Cox will read out a Memoriam to Nasser, followed by a minute applause. The first ball will be bowled at 13:00.
Be sure to invite all your friends, family and loved ones for a day of socialising, friendship, reminiscing and great fun.
There will also be Ploughmans club ties and official Ploughmans branded reusable pint glasses in abundance.
We can't wait to see you all there.
