CHESHIRE will complete their Knockout Trophy campaign at Hyde on Sunday.
Although they now cannot qualify for the quarter-finals they can dash the hopes of visitors Northumberland, who are still in the hunt.
Two spinners – Hyde left-armer Danny Cranmer who was due to make his debut in the washed out game at Kendal two weeks ago, and Chester Boughton Hall’s 20-year-old leg spinner Jack Williams – will make their debuts.
The team will be joined at the picturesque Werneth Low ground by the Cheshire CCC Roadshow.
The show aims to provide information about cricket across the county as well as generate much-needed income through increased membership sales.
Cheshire vice-chairman David Bailey, who came up with the idea, explained: “We’re looking to spread the word about how we operate, our overall objectives and our future plans.
“Cricket in Cheshire is thriving and it’s important we tap in to that at all levels and encourage participation in the game.”
As well as providing full details about Cheshire CCC, visitors to the colourful marquee can purchase club items such as souvenir guides, handbooks and clothing, become individual or corporate members, sponsor the club or individual players and participate in a fun darts competition that will run throughout the year.
Bailey added: “That’s the fun side. The serious bit is getting our message across, increasing involvement from people of all ages across the County and heightening the profile of Cheshire CCC.”
As well as appearing at all first team matches, the Roadshow will also have a presence at home development team matches and selected ECB Premier fixtures on Saturdays.
