Tres to make England Masters debut at King’s College
A large number of England cricketing legends will be heading to Taunton on Thursday July 2nd for the T20 match between King’s College and The PCA Masters XI which starts at 4.30pm.
Three of the stars of England’s 2005 Ashes winning team are included in the line up, local hero Marcus Trescothick who is making his debut for the Masters, and strike bowlers Matthew Hoggard and Simon Jones.
If that’s not all the bowling line up also contains another England and Somerset legend Andy Caddick and Alex Tudor so there will be no respite for the King’s batsmen.
‘Mr Twinkletoes’ himself – Mark Ramprakash who won BBC Strictly Come Dancing, will be one of the batsmen who will be looking to hit as many sixes as possible at King’s along with Neil Fairbrother, Matt Maynard, the Somerset Director of Cricket, Mal Loye and Adam Hollioake.
The wicket-keeping duties will be carried out by former Yorkshire stumper Richard Blakey who completes a star studded line-up.
This game is one that no local cricket fan will want to miss and entry costs just £10 for adults and £3 for accompanied juniors with all the proceeds going to the new Sports Hub at King’s that will benefit the whole of the Taunton sporting community.
