Great Dalby CC to honour village and county cricket stalwart

Have your say

Great Dalby Cricket Club are holding a game in memory of Fred Parker on Bank Holiday Monday, August 26 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.

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, and the club is hoping for good local support to make it a memorable afternoon.
