Scarborough Cricket Club say they are delighted to host the clash of the Roses.

North Marine Road will be the venue for Yorkshire vs Lancashire in the County Championship on Sunday 14th June.

The town has only hosted the clash twice before.

Bill Mustoe, Vice-President of Scarborough Cricket Club, said:

"It's ages since it's ever came to Scarborough and the Roses match is just one of the great cricket fixtures in the history of the game.

It's the war of the Roses, it's the red rose versus the white rose.

So it is just a huge game and we're looking forward to it.

It's just one of those dream fixtures and we can't wait to get going.

There'll be bumper crowds and there'll be a lot of interest in it.

I think it'll be great for the town and the coast, it's obviously incredibly attractive.

It is one of the greatest venues in the country and we attract people from overseas who come each year to actually watch at Scarborough.

It's exciting to have one of the greatest historical matches to be able to stage it at Scarborough."

Bill has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Karen Liu:

Yorkshire will also be at Scarborough for two 50-over games in July and August, against Warwickshire and Nottinghamshire.
