As a Yorkshire Cricket Club member I was entitled to purchase up to six (6) tickets for the first four days of the Ashes Test at Headingley next August.
They went on sale at 10am (UK time) both online and through the ticket office.
As a bit of a saddo I was online at 9.55am UK time waiting ……….
I have purchased four (4) tickets for the Thursday and the Saturday!!!!
Watching cricket at Headingley was a large part of my childhood. My father took me as often as we could, and we were both delighted to be their when Boycott got his 100th 100.
My father used to go with his step father, and we used to sit in the same place as they used to.
It has changed now (all seat) but the White Rose Stand (Popular Enclosure) is pretty mush where we used to sit so am really happy that we have seats there and it will be great to go with my father again, and of course with Sands and my mother.
We need to figure the logistics as living in Spain with all the animals is not exactly ideal for a couple of days out at the cricket: but we are working on that!!!
