NCCC to host first T20 Pro:Am

Northamptonshire County Cricket Club (NCCC) has announced its association with the first ever T20:ProAm cricket event, a unique opportunity for amateur club players to take part alongside professional players and legends from yesteryear.

In an event to be held at NCCC’s County Ground on Sunday 20 August, the day features four teams - sponsored by well-known brands such as Greene King IPA and Northampton-based Travis Perkins - playing each other in a fast and furious tournament with music, cheerleaders and the party atmosphere synonymous with T20 cricket.

The teams are being coached by the likes of England cricketing legend Darren Gough and each team features an NCCC pro - current captain Alex Wakely, Steven Crook, Rory Kleinveldt and Richard Levi - along with a cricketing legend - Simon Jones, Alex Tudor, Monty Panesar and Devon Malcolm.

The fun starts at 11:00 with two semi-finals across the day and a final played under floodlights - not something amateur players ever get to experience (let alone being bowled at by a current or past cricketing legend). Tickets are on sale now at just £10 for adults; children under 16 go free.

Ricky Ricketts, Director of T20 Pro:Am said: "The concept of T20 Pro:Am started last year when Northants won the T20 Blast final. We wanted to bring this fantastic experience to talented club cricketers and give them the opportunity to shine on a county ground whilst testing themselves and learning from professional players and legends- that’s what T20 Pro:Am is all about.

“We're delighted that this concept has been backed by a big company like Travis Perkins who are all about community, nurturing talent and shining a spotlight on excellence. And - who knows - one of the players may get picked up by a professional club, which would be the icing on the cake.”
