Memories of the Bradford Central League will come flooding back a week on Sunday. (June 29).

Bingley Congs have invited seven other former Central League teams to take part in an over-40 eight-a-side competition (1pm).

Invited teams to make up the eight are Bolton Villas, Crossflatts, Harden, Haworth Road, Laisterdyke, Sandy Lane and Thornton.

However, there is a serious side to the day as money will be raised for both the Brian Tumour Charity and club funds.

The charity is close to Bingley Congs' hearts as one of their players – former Kent and England pace bowler Alan Igglesden – has lived with a brain tumour for 14 years.

There will be a main event and, for the first-round losers, a plate, both on a knockout basis, and each match will be five overs per side with five bowlers to be used.

Batsmen will retire at 25 but can return when all other team members have completed their innings.

The draw will be at 12.45pm.
