COMMUNITY spirit has come to the fore in Keighley, with Cougars set to play a charity cricket match at Bingley Congs next month as they look to raise money for Kirsty Lambert, who has been diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of just 32.

Lambert is the partner of Cougars first-team player Aidan Scully, and all proceeds from the game will go towards a fund being set up to support the couple and their three young children.

This game takes place on July 11 and will be followed ten days later by a benefit night at Cougar Park to raise more funds. Cougars Women's team will be taking part in the club's very own version of 'Blind Date'.

Meanwhile, the main attraction will be a performance of Full Monty, starring none other than coach Craig Lingard and prop Brad Nicholson, among others!

Lingard will be a little less exposed at the cricket match, as he skippers the Cougars side at Beckfoot Lane. Cougars' Head of Operations Joshua Chapman will be his vice-captain.

Alongside Lingard and Chapman at the game will be Cougars players Nicholson, Harry Aaronson and Brendon Rawlins, as well as reserves head coach Scott Lindsey and Paul Calvert from match sponsors Clever Energy Boilers.

Other names have yet to be confirmed.
