Notts Outlaws will raise the curtain on this summer’s 50-over campaign with a fixture on the road against Norfolk on Sunday 31 July (11am start).
Horsford Cricket Club, situated on Manor Park in Norwich (NR10 3AQ), is playing host to the contest, invoking memories of traditional minor county contests against First-Class opposition in the various guises of the one-day trophy through to 2005.
Entry for adults is priced at £5 for adults (reduced to £4 upon production of a 2022 Nottinghamshire membership card) and £4 for senior citizens, with under 18s to be admitted free of charge.
The cost of entry will need to be paid in cash on the gate, with no tickets being sold in advance. Car parking will be available priced at £3.
Those making the trip to take in the contest are advised to take their own portable chairs or picnic rugs, as seating at the venue will be in short supply.
Catering options, including a hog roast and barbecue will be provided on the ground, with patrons also welcome to supply their own food and drink.
Horsford Cricket Club’s address is located on Manor Park, Holt Road, Norwich, NR10 3AQ, in close proximity to Norwich International Airport.
“For those of us who have been involved in the game for a long time, matches against National County opposition bring back lots of memories – and it’s something we’re looking forward to rekindling," said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.
“Those matches were fraught with danger for the First-Class sides, knowing that our opposition had nothing to lose and were desperate to claim a scalp. Norfolk are sure to be in much the same frame of mind for this game, which will make it a good test for us ahead of the start of the Royal London Cup competition.
“It’s going to be a significant day on the calendar for our hosts and we are appreciative of the amount of work that goes into readying a venue for such an event. We’ll be looking to play our part in a memorable occasion and an entertaining game of cricket.”
A limited number of hospitality places remain available, priced at £49.50 per person, with more information available by contacting Caroline Nunn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
