Great Dalby Cricket Club are holding a game in memory of Fred Parker on Bank Holiday Monday with a 1.30pm start.
Fred had a lifelong association with the club and was a popular stalwart of the Leicestershire cricket community.
The club have purchased a seat in Fred’s memory and the family have agreed to cut the ribbon at the tea interval of the feature match between a Fred Parker XI and a Great Dalby past and present side.
The Fred Parker XI will be captained by his former work colleague and Egerton Park cricketer Andy Clay, with the side made up of players from seven local clubs.
Nine of the Past and Present XI have lived in Great Dalby and have been associated with the cricket club over the years, playing regularly for the village team.
Refreshments will be available and a barbecue, while a fundraising raffle will be held.
Parking is available in the field off Top End, opposite the primary school.
The club is hoping for plenty of local support to make it a memorable afternoon.
