Collingwood hosts Sunderland versus Newcastle T20 testimonial match
To celebrate Paul Collingwood MBE’s testimonial year at Durham County Cricket Club, the three-times Ashes winner will host the first ever Sunderland versus Newcastle T20 cricket match at Emirates Riverside (AUG 20, gates open 12, start time 2.30pm).
Donned in his beloved red and white stripes, Collingwood will lead his star-filled Sunderland side into battle under the management of former Black Cats boss, Peter Reid while Newcastle’s squad will be coached by Magpies legend Kevin Keegan.
After 21 years of cricket for Durham and England, Paul Collingwood has made more appearances for his home county than anyone – 201 – and scored more centuries (22). He made his debut in 1995, scoring 91 in his maiden first class innings in 1996.
Make sure you don’t miss out on celebrating Colly’s outstanding contribution to Durham County Cricket Club and witness some of the finest, past and present, Durham and England cricket stars in a fun-filled afternoon at Emirates Riverside.
The match – sponsored by Infiniti Newcastle and M24Seven – is also supporting and raising funds for the Graham Wylie Foundation that does incredible work to improve the lives of vulnerable children and young people across the region.
