Sedbergh School are set to play host to a Lancashire Cricket fixture for the second successive year.

After the Cumbrian school’s successful hosting of the County Championship fixture against Durham last season, Lancashire have announced it will return to Sedbergh for their Royal London Cup one-day game against Middlesex on Sunday, July 19.

Sedbergh School will also host the inaugural National Counties fixture between Cumberland and Lancashire on July 17, as a warm-up to Lancashire’s cup campaign, which will see Middlesex travel to Sedbergh, near Kendal, two days later.

Completing a Sedbergh School festival of cricket, which will see three games of cricket taking place within one week, is the women’s Hundred fixture between Manchester Originals and the Oval Invincibles on Friday, July 24.

Dan Harrison, headmaster at Sedbergh School, said: “We are delighted here at Sedbergh to be hosting more Lancashire CCC matches next year.

"We were thrilled with the successful outcome of the first-class match last year and are looking forward to welcoming cricket fans back in July.

"We are especially pleased to be hosting one of the women’s Hundred match alongside the two other games, as part of our festival of cricket."

Lancashire’s director of cricket Paul Allott said: “We’re delighted with the way the fixture list has worked out and our thanks must go to the ECB [England's Cricket Board] for their cooperation, as well as the three outgrounds which we will be using next summer.

"Sedbergh School’s hosting of the four-day fixture against Durham last year has encouraged the county to return for a 50-over game in 2020.”

Surrey all-rounder Jordan Clark and former Durham left-arm quick bowler Jamie Harrison are two Cumbrians who were educated at Sedbergh.
