Guildford Cricket Festival

 

We are delighted that Guildford has been allocated the following match:

SURREY v NOTTINGHAMSHIRE

Tuesday, 27th July 2021

at Guildford Cricket Club

The one day Royal London Cup (50overs) match at Woodbridge Road will be Surrey vs Nottinghamshire on Tuesday 27 July 2021.  Guildford welcome Nottinghamshire as Surrey’s 1 day opponents, 4 years since they last met in the competition.  Then it was the 2017 final when Alex Hales left his stamp on the match with an unbeaten 187 as the Outlaws won by 4 wickets, despite a century from Surrey’s Mark Stoneman.

Surrey have played Notts 5 times in limited overs matches at Woodbridge Road, the last time in 2012 and the visitors lead the head to head 3-2.

Play starts at 11.00 am and the gates open at 9.30 am.

Subject to any change announced by the Government, normal arrangements will apply to this match, with no special restrictions on spectators.
