the ashes

Blackpool Cricket Club will host the First ODI Test in the Over 60's Ashes, on Sunday 16th July.


Seevent England 60+ 2017 Squad

The trial process has now been completed and the selectors have named the squad for the summer series against Australia.
It has been extremely difficult to reduce the numbers down to just 16 from the original group of nominated players along with those who toured Australia last year. Congratulations to all those who have made it into the final squad but also, commiserations of course to those who have not been selected this time. The players represent 15 different counties.
Since the trial, Chris Swadkin has decided to withdraw from the playing side (he will still be involved in selection) and Martin Ivill has been appointed as Vice-Captain in his place.

The final squad with reserves is as follows:
J Foster (c) (Shropshire), M Ivill (Yorkshire), D Bartholomew (Lancashire), N Belletty (Somerset (wk), N Calvert (Lincolnshire), I Caunce (Oxfordshire), J Courtney (Gloucestershire), D Elder (Hertfordshire), K Harsham (Hampshire), D Owen (Buckinghamshire), D Pegg (Northamptonshire), J Punchard (Lancashire), M Stafford (Buckinghamshire), R Staple (Kent), M Walwyn (Yorkshire), M Young (Essex)
Reserve keeper on standby: C Tarrant (Kent)
Reserves on standby: S Clements (Hertfordshire), C Evans (Surrey), J Phillips (Kent)
There will be a squad get-together on 2 July at Banbury XX Cricket Club starting at 1.00pm.

The matches against Australia are as follows:
FIRST ODI TEST Sunday 16 July at Blackpool CC 
SECOND ODI TEST Sunday 23 July at Kidderminster CC 
THIRD ODI TEST Friday 28 July at South Wilts CC 
All spectators are welcome to come along and support the team.
