A pre season game between Birmingham Unicorns and NBCC.

The Birmingham Unicorns may include guests from the newly formed Leeds Inclusive Cricket.

NBCC team will include players from NBCC, Milford Hall Cricket Club, and #HerGameToo ambassadors.

The game will provide an opportunity for regular players to get some overs into the legs and for those that have not played before or who are returning to the game to dip the old toes in without fear!

Kit

NBCC will provide coloured playing tops for the NBCC team. Please let us know your size and we will do our best to provide you with the right one BUT we don’t have sweaters so consider a base layer, or even a sweater underneath. If possible wear black bottoms, or feel free to head over to our store and treat yourself. You will be able to buy your coloured top for £30 if you feel so inclined with all the funds going into to supporting the club.

If you do need to borrow equipment or kit please check our our virtual kit bag and let us know in advance what you need.
