Cheshire play their final KO Trophy match for the 2013 season
MCCA KO Trophy: Cheshire CCC v Northumberland CCC at Hyde, Sunday June 2nd 2013
By Jim Law

The Cheshire CCC Roadshow literally moves on to Hyde this week as Cheshire complete their 2013 MCCA KO programme with a home game against Northumberland.

And Cheshire's brand new Roadshow makes its second appearance following its launch at Tattenhall earlier this month for the Cambridgeshire match.

The Roadshow is the brainchild of Cheshire vice-chairman David Bailey and aims to provide information about Cheshire cricket across the County as well as generate much needed income through increased membership sales. 'We're looking to spread the word about how we operate, our overall objectives and our future plans,' explained Bailey. '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. 'That's the fun side,' continued Bailey, '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 1st XI matches, the Roadshow will also have a presence at home Development XI matches, selected ECB Premier League Saturday games and some Cheshire Youth Matches.

On the field, Cheshire entertain a strong Northumberland side as they play at Hyde's picturesque Werneth Low ground for the first time. Although Cheshire cannot now qualify for the quarter final stages, Northumberland are very much in the hunt.

The game sees two debutant spinners - left-armer Danny Cranmer from Hyde who was due to make his debut in the washed out game at Kendal two weeks ago, and a well-deserved call-up for Chester Boughton Hall's 20 year old leg spinner, Jack Williams.
