General Information

Cockermouth Cricket Club along with our very own Ben Stokes, are delighted to announce that on Thursday 10th August 2017, Cockermouth CC will play the England PCA Masters at the Raymond Denham Cricket Oval at Sandair.

Spectators are advised to bring their own seating and/or blankets, as the seating at the club is very limited.

This day, which is the brainchild of England sensation Ben Stokes, will be a celebration for the club as we move towards full recovery from the floods of December 2015. It will provide the people not only of Cockermouth but also the surrounding areas, a unique chance to see international cricketing legends in their own locality.

Ben has always maintained excellent links with our club and has developed the England PCA Masters idea along with his manager, Neil Fairbrother, from ISM, in order to acknowledge the role that Cockermouth CC played in his development and progression from Cockermouth hopeful to world superstar. We are delighted to say that Ben will be our Guest of Honour for the PCA Masters Day on August 10th.

The day will consist of: junior exhibition matches, where local children will get to showcase their talents; corporate hospitality marquee with three-course-meal, bar and entertainment, including a Q&A with Ben Stokes and other PCA Masters legends either side of the main match and finally, general ground admission tickets to Cockermouth CC v The England PCA Masters XI in a Twenty20 cricket match.

It promises to be a fantastic day for all spectators, whether junior, senior or corporate and we are extremely excited to announce this today.

Car Parking

On the day, there will be no parking at the ground but arrangements have been made for free car parking at The Fitz. Entrance to The Fitz can be found by going past Aldi to your left, then over the mini roundabout for Lakes Home Centre, with the car park just after this on the left. Directions to the car park will be signposted on the day.
