Stony Stratford Cricket Club will take on a team of former England internationals at the Festival of Cricket at Campbell Park in July.

The PCA Legends XI is made of up a full team of ex-England Internationals and the team on the day will (subject to fitness) include Mark Ramprakash, Matthew Hoggard, Paul Nixon, Alex Tudor, Devon Malcolm and Neil Fairbrother on Friday July 25.

Stony Stratford will also play a team from the MK Dons including Club Manager Karl Robinson along with players, staff and guests of the club.

Stony Stratford Cricket Club Chairman, Mike Smith said: “We are delighted to be able to host such a fantastic Festival of Cricket at Campbell Park.

“The opportunity for the club and for sports fans across Milton Keynes to come and see a team of ex-England internationals in the heart of our city is a wonderful one!”

Briony Fox, Head of Community Engagement at The Parks Trust, said: “We’d like to thank Stony Stratford Cricket Club for choosing us as their partner for this fantastic event.

“The income we receive from hosting the event will be invested into caring for our 5,000 acres of parks in Milton Keynes so, as a self-financing charity, it’s great for us to benefit from the Festival.”

The early plans for the day will commence with a Junior Cricket Tournament before the PCA Masters team arrive to sign autographs and provide a fantastic coaching experience for some of our junior players.

Advanced tickets for the Festival are now on sale at £15 for adults and £5 for children under 16 with a family ticket also available.
