Melton Mowbray CC will pay tribute to their popular former player Jon Taylor with a special memorial match on Saturday.

The club will host the fixture against a Select XI from local clubs at their All England Ground home.

Jon, a talented all-rounder, died tragically at the age of 32 on September 13 last year following a match-winning performance for Melton in the last game of the season.

Melton will be captained by Jon’s brother Ryan in a 20-over match which starts at 2pm.

There will also be a barbecue, cake sales, games, raffles and refreshments with funds divided between the Kidney Trust Foundation, and to support, encourage and enable youth players to enjoy and participate in cricket.

Everyone is welcome to go along and celebrate Jon’s life.
