SOME of cricket’s biggest international names will be in action at Crimble on Bank Holiday Monday (May 28).
It’s a feather in the cap of Heywood Cricket Club who are staging the Royal London Women’s One-Day Cup 50-overs-per-side match between Lancashire and Hampshire (11am).
Heywood’s very own Kate Cross, pictured, will line up in a strong Lancashire side alongside her fellow England internationals Alex Hartley and Sophie Eccleston.
And Hampshire have their own big names on parade featuring among others former long-serving England captain Charlotte Edwards.
Another is Suzie Bates (inset), the prolific New Zealand opening bat, who has established a reputation of being one of the best women players in the world.
It promises to be a significant occasion for Heywood, who are hoping that a decent crowd will turn out to add to the atmosphere of the occasion.
