Yeovil Town have agreed to swap football shirts for cricketing whites in a summer friendly match later this month. They will take on North Perrott Cricket Club on Thursday 26th July at their ground in an evening match that will commence at 6.00p.m.
The annual cricket match between the club and local cricketing sides dried up during Terry Skiverton's tenure, with the last match back in 2009 eventually being called off, due to injuries within the first team squad leading up to the fixture.
This one marks the return from Martock back to North Perrott for the first time in a number of years. There will be a bar open at the venue for those who maybe want to hover inside for part of the evening.
Yeovil Town's secret cricketing weapon used to be Craig Alcock, who regularly played for his local Wincanton side during the summer months. It now becomes Reuben Reid, who made appearances for the Gloucestershire Second XI, before signing a deal as a professional footballer with Plymouth Argyle.
