Some of Newmarket’s best known trainers will be swapping the gallops for their cricketing whites on Sunday afternoon.

Last year saw the first match – played over a Twenty20 format – played between the town’s recently-reformed cricket club and a Racing & Trainers XI.

And the two sides will lock horns for a second time at The Severals this weekend, with the event getting under way at 12pm and play starting at 2pm.

Funds raised from the game, which is sponsored by Physiowork Physiotherapy Clinics, will go to registered charity Racing Welfare.

The cricket club’s team will be made up of players from their first, second and Sunday sides, while George Scott, Charlie Fellowes, George Boughey, William Knight, Harry Eustace, Richard Spencer and Ed Dunlop have all agreed to turn out for the Racing & Trainers XI.

Chairman of the cricket club – Frank Stennett – said: “Newmarket Cricket Club is delighted to welcome Racing & Trainers XI. This is something everyone has been looking forward to for some time.

“This event would not be possible without the dedication and organisation from William Jarvis (chairman of the Newmarket Trainers Federation) and together we hope to create a fun packed day and look forward to seeing many faces down The Severals to watch a cracking game of cricket.”

* Newmarket’s first team, who lost by five wickets to Eaton Socon last weekend, travel to Ramsey on Saturday (12pm).
