Fylde coast cricket fans can watch at least three senior Lancashire matches at Blackpool CC in 2024 following confirmation of next season’s fixture list.

Two women’s matches and a men’s game are confirmed for Stanley Park next year, all of them taking place on a Sunday.

First up is the Charlotte Edwards Cup match between the women’s Thunder team and the Sunrisers on June 9 (2.30pm).

Historic win for Thornton Cleveleys CC’s Joshua

Three weeks after that, July 28, the men face Kent Spitfires in the Metro Bank One Day Cup (11am).

It’s the second year in a row Lancashire will play Kent in that competition at Blackpool after the Red Rose won August’s meeting by 125 runs.

That was one of four one-day matches on the Fylde last year, with the men winning their Vitality Blast game against Worcestershire Rapids by four wickets.

The women played two Charlotte Edwards Cup matches, beating South East Stars by 16 runs and Northern Diamonds by seven wickets.

Lancashire’s men also played Essex in the LV= Insurance County Championship at Stanley Park, losing their division one match by 46 runs.

Five of 2024’s seven home County Championship matches are at Emirates Old Trafford, while Southport and Birkdale hosts the game with Nottinghamshire (June 30-July 3).

The remaining match against Durham (May 17-20) is listed as ‘TBC’ by Lancashire’s website, though the ECB’s fixture list names Stanley Park as the host venue.

However, a Lancashire spokesman told The Gazette that the venue remains to be confirmed for the time being.
