Kids for a quid for last T20 Hove clash

Sussex Sharks are giving their young fans a chance to watch their T20 heroes for just £1.

Sussex Sharks are giving their young fans a chance to watch their T20 heroes for just £1.

The Sharks entertain Glamorgan under the lights on Tuesday night in what could prove a key fixture in this season’s Natwest T20 Blast South group.

A win tonight against Kent Spitfires would put the Sharks within striking distance of the all-important fourth place with just three league section games to go.

And with Glamorgan currently occupying that last qualifying spot, maximum points on Tuesday would

give the Sharks a genuine chance of reaching the quarter finals, with away games at Hampshire and Essex still offering the chance to plunder more points.

Glamorgan have a strong batting line-up, led by Jim Allenby. The county’s captain chalked up an impressive 105 to propel his side to victory in their recent T20 match with Middlesex.

Tuesday’s game starts at 6.30pm, with gates opening at 5pm, and the county is hoping to see a sea of young faces in the Shark Tank.

Anyone under 18 can get a ticket for £1 when accompanied by a full paying adult.

And, as if cut-price entry wasn’t enough, fans can also enjoy the batting blitz safe in the knowledge that every £1 generated from the promotion will go towards Sussex Cricket in the Community, which helps cricket-based community initiatives across the county.

Adult tickets are available from £20 (unreserved seating) and anyone wanting to take advantage of the £1 deal for juniors must book in advance, either online at: www.sussexcricket.co.uk or by calling 0844 264 0206.
