Cromer Cricket Club has thrown down a charity challenge for its annual Presidents Day game on Sunday - to turn the ground blue in aid of The Big C.

The club is inviting everyone attending the match to wear the charity's signature colour of blue.

Club chairman Kent Laws said: 'We've taken inspiration from The McGrath Foundation, set up by former Australian fast bowler Glen McGrath and his wife Jane in 2002 following her diagnosis of breast cancer, where, at selected test matches spectators are asked to create a sea of pink on Jane McGrath Day.

'We're asking people to follow suit but turn Cromer's Norton Warnes ground blue, the colour of The Big C and of course enjoy some fabulous cricket and entertainment and raise money for this amazing charity.'

The 11am game this Sunday August 3 will see Cromer take on an invited president's team made up of some of the best cricketers in Norfolk.
