Northants are giving away 5,000 free tickets for Saturday’s Royal London One-Day Cup clash with Durham Jets at the County Ground.

David Ripley’s men are desperate to get off to a good start in the competition, with the game against Durham to be shown live on Sky Sports from 10.25am.

And to help them begin with a bang they are bidding to get as many fans to attend as possible.

Last Friday, more than 6,500 supporters packed into the County Ground to watch the Steelbacks beat Yorkshire Vikings in the NatWest Blast T20.

And now they want similar scenes this Saturday.

The game will mark this year’s Community Day so fans are being told to make sure they arrive early and enjoy the range of activities on show.

In order to claim your free ticket head to the main reception on Abington Avenue and complete a very short form or call Northampton 514455.

Tickets are limited to four per person.
