Northamptonshire legends such as Allan Lamb, David Capel and Rob Bailey will be in playing action at the County Ground again this Sunday.

They will all be taking part in the Kevin Curran Memorial match which takes place ahead of the Steelbacks’ Friends Life t20 clash with Glamorgan.

The game sees a Northamptonshire Legends side take on Gloucestershire Legends in a 12-over match.

It will be played in tribute to Curran who represented both counties with distinction and who died of a heart attack last year while out jogging.

The game will begin at 11am, advance tickets cost £13 which include entry to both games and it will raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

Among the Gloucestershire players on view will be former England star Jack Russell and West Indies legend Courtney Walsh.

Northants Legends from: Fordham, Felton, BJ Curran, SM Curran, Bailey, Lamb, Capel, Penberthy, Ripley, NGB Cook, Snape, Bowen, Taylor.

Gloucestershire Legends from: Brassington, Hancock, Wright, TK Curran, Romaines, Bainbridge, Williams, Ball, Alleyne, Williams, Sainsbury, Russell, Walsh, Lawrence, D Graveney, J Graveney, Stovold, Butcher, Hodgson, August.
