This year's county community cricket day is set for Sunday, August 24.

Organisers, who include officers and staff from Hertfordshire Constabulary, are seeking players and supporters from across the county to take part in the family event.

The day will be held at Watford Town Cricket Club and also offers an opportunity to find out more about the work of the constabulary and Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd.

PC Irfan Ishaq, the event's organiser, said: "Last year's match saw the community team triumph over the Hertfordshire Constabulary team and take home the trophy - who had won the year before last.

"This year we hope to take that trophy back.

"This is a great community event which brings police officers and residents in the community together and I would really like to encourage anyone who is free on Sunday, August 24 to come along. 

"It's a great opportunity for residents to find out how the police and the Police and Crime Commissioner work for the benefit of the county. Whether a fan of cricket or not, there is plenty for everyone to enjoy."

The match starts at noon on the Horseshoe Lane ground and runs until 5pm.

Cash prizes will be awarded to players with the highest score in runs and wickets. Wickes in St Albans is also supporting the event by offering £50 in vouchers to the player who picks up the 'Man of the Match' accolade.
