Cricketers and cricket fans from around the Scarborough area, as well as the villagers of Cloughton, will gather this weekend for the Mick Readman Memorial cricket match.

The game will take place at Cloughton CC on Sunday afternoon from 2.30pm.

The event will feature live music, the Rowlies Dancers, a barbecue, bar and kids’ sports day as well as the main event which will see the Bud Select XI take on the Damo Select XI, teams led by Mick’s sons Michael and Damian.

For those looking to get into the spirit of the weekend a little earlier, a quiz night and disco will be held at the Red Lion pub in Cloughton tomorrow night.

These events are held in memory of Mick Readman.

Dawn Readman, who lost husband Mick in Saint Catherine’s Hospice in 2007 and Paul Mintoft, whose mum died in the hospice, are the main driving forces behind the event, along with other fundraising efforts which have seen thousands of pounds raised for Saint Catherine’s.

Saint Catherine’s Director of Funding Development, David Marshall, said: “We are once again grateful to the generous organisers for staging this event in aid of Saint Catherine’s.

“They put a tremendous amount of time and effort into raising funds for the hospice and we wish them every success.”
