Guiseley are also offering £5 admission for spectators arriving after 5.30pm. They will also be entitled to enjoy the live musical entertain- ment which will round off the day between 8 and 9.30pm.

Club official Nick Fraser said: “The interest is really building up and the ticket sales are going well.
“The Legends have named a strong squad which in addition to the Test players includes the one-day spec- ialist Mal Loye. It should be a great occasion and we are looking forward to an exciting afternoon.”
