ASKERN Welfare will play the MCC - England’s oldest cricket club - on Sunday as part of their ongoing centenary celebrations.

Vice chairman Kevin O’Grady said: “The game will celebrate one hundred years of cricket in Askern and we’re honoured the MCC has taken up our offer of the game.

“This promises to be a very special day when we rightly celebrate all that has gone before and acknowledge those who made this history through their deeds on and off the field.”

Play starts at 11.30am.
