Cricketers from around the Scarborough area and Cloughton residents will be gathering this weekend for the Mick Readman Memorial cricket match.

The t20 match game will take place at Cloughton CC on Sunday afternoon from 2.30pm, with Mick’s sons Damian and Mikey leading the two teams.

Most of the proceeds of the weekend’s activities will go to St Catherine’s Hospice, where Mick passed away in 2007.

It will be an especially busy weekend for Mikey, as he is marrying fiancee Sarah Coates on Saturday.

The Scarborough RUFC player said: “It’s certainly going to be a busy weekend for me.

“The weekend’s events start with Friday’s race night and disco at the Red Lion pub, 7.30pm, and there will also be a raffle.

“On Sunday we have the cricket match and I hope I can lead my side to their seventh successive win as I have steered my side to victory in all six games so far.

“My brother’s team did win the first match but that was before it became a memorial match.

“I know what my team is but we generally keep the line-ups secret from each other to add to the competition.

“The party atmosphere carries on into the evening and it should be a great day for everyone.”

The event starts at 12.30pm with a family fun day with races and ‘old school’ events and a ladies rounders match.

There will be refreshments and a barbecue throughout the afternoon and another raffle as well as live music into the evening.
