Local cricket clubs across England and Wales are being given the chance to go head-to-head against former England captain Michael Vaughan and his team of cricket legends thanks to the NatWest Locals v Legends T20 Series.
Giving teams the chance to create their own unique piece of history, NatWest Cricket Club captain, Michael Vaughan says, “Every local cricket club has its own legends who, on their day, believe that they can compete against the best. The NatWest Locals v Legends T20 Series will allow three grassroots clubs to win the chance for my team of former England stars to come and play them at their home ground for a one off match to raise funds for their club.”
Royal Ascot Cricket Club will host the game on their home turf which will provide a great opportunity to get the local community involved and raise vital funds through activities such as selling tickets, organising a BBQ and opening up the bar to satisfy the appetite of their club members and wider community.
