SPECTATORS wishing to go to Lord's to watch Suffolk play in their Minor Counties KO Trophy final have until next Monday to book their coach travel.

Suffolk, who face Cheshire at the home of cricket on Monday, August 27, are already assured of a good level of support for their first appearance in a Lord's final.

Suffolk official David Armes, who is handling coach bookings on behalf of the county, said: “We have got something in the region of 150 tickets sold already on the coaches, and there are probably another 50 spectators who we know of who will be making their own way to Lord's for various reasons.

“We will have at least a couple of hundred supporters going along to watch, and hopefully more than that. I understand that some local cricket clubs are still getting names together, but if they wish to go by coach they need to let me know as soon as possible and by the 20th of the month at the latest.”
