Fans will be able to play alongside the current

Gloucestershire CCC squad at a golf day to support grass roots cricket.

The event at Cirencester Golf Club on March 14 will raise

money for the Gloucestershire Cricket Board's (GCB) county youth programme and

a number of its other community and school projects.

For £140 you can enter a team of four or a team of three

plus a member of the Gloucestershire playing or coaching staff. The entry fee

also includes refreshments and a bacon roll on arrival, a two course dinner and

entry into a prize raffle.

Gloucestershire Cricket Board chief executive Steve Silk said:

"This should be a wonderful event and we are hugely grateful to the

Gloucestershire players and staff for giving up their time to support the work

we do developing cricket across the county.

"This is a great opportunity for supporters to rub shoulders

with their heroes and play on one of the county's top golf courses. Whether you

are a cricket club with a number of keen golfers or a business looking to

entertain clients, this will be a fantastic day out."

There are 24 four balls available with tee times between 9am

and 12pm. Slots are available on a first come, first served basis by ringing

Steve on 07554 45228 or emailing steve.silk@glosccc.co.uk.

There will also be a series of competitions throughout the

day with prizes for the individual winner, team winner, nearest

the pin and nearest the pin with a cricket bat, longest drive and most points

with a yellow ball.

Steve said: "I am sure there will be plenty of friendly

rivalry between our cricket clubs to prove which is the best on the golf course

and we look forward to finding out on March 14.

 "As a not for profit

organisation we are reliant on grants and fundraising for all our projects so

events like these can have a really powerful impact on the work we do. What

could be better than playing on a picturesque golf course, meeting the current

GCCC squad and doing your bit for Gloucestershire cricket at the same time?"
