Upminster’s benefit match with County Championship Division One outfit Essex, in aid of the Essex Cricket Foundation, will take place on Sunday September 4.

The 30-over-a-side clash, which occurs annually, is set to be another enjoyable event for all involved.

Essex will make the short trip from Chelmsford to Upminster Park for an afternoon of great action on and off the pitch.

Refreshments will be available and includes a BBQ plus there is plenty to eat and drink in the Beer Tent, the Ice Cream Van or the Tea Tent.

Entrance to the match is by programme, priced at £2.50 and available in advance or on the day.

Access to the Pavilion and marquee next to the Pavilion between 11.30am and 7.30pm will be strictly limited to players, officials, sponsors, invited guests, life vice-presidents, catering and bar staff.

There will be a raffle taking place during the match as well with a number of cricket and non cricket related prizes.

Upminster announced their 13-man squad for the day last month, although have had to amend it since.

First-team captain Alan Ison was originally included in the line-up, but will miss out this time.

Fourth XI skipper Stephen Limn has replaced the all-rounder, who has led Upminster to the brink of the Essex League Division One title this season.

Numerous members of the successful first-team are in the squad while Oliver White will make his benefit debut after impressing over the last 18 months and Paul Stratton is included to honour his commitment and enthusiasm around the club in recent years.

Connor and Julian Whetstone will also be playing in the annual match for the first time after signing from Hutton this year.

Squad: Stephen Limn, Will Chuter, John Curtis, Frankie Hazle, Harry Jenkins, Louis Pickering, Shafiq Rahman, Shahbaz Butt, Paul Stratton, Matt Tigg, Connor Whetstone, Julian Whetstone, Oliver White.
