War of the Roses clash sold out at Headingley— 24 June 2014
Friday’s NatWest T20 Blast match between Yorkshire Vikings and Lancashire Lightning at Headingley will be played in front of a 16,200 capacity crowd. The last remaining single seats were snapped up this week and for the second successive year the house full signs will be up for the War of the Roses derby clash – in what is the biggest rivalry in County Cricket.
With Yorkshire placed in a strong position in the top half of the North Group, Andrew Gale’s men will be looking to build on their recent performances similar to 2012 when they went all the way to T20 Finals Day losing out to Hampshire in the final.
“The memories of 2012 are still firmly etched on the players’ mind,” added Arthur.
“They are aware that a few victories on the bounce can build momentum going into the final group matches.
“We have a number of games coming up over the next ten days at Headingley and we hope that many supporters will be able to join us at our back-to-back home matches next week when we play Leicestershire Foxes on Tuesday July 1 and Durham Jets on Wednesday July 2. If we can get on a run over the next week and produce some quality performances we will go a long way to securing our place in the knockout stages of the competition.”
