Cricket clubs will be hoping to cash in on a Bank Holiday bonanza with matches scheduled for all three days over the weekend.

With the added attraction of the England v New Zealand Second Test at Headingley, Super League’s Magic Weekend, the Champions League and Championship Play-off finals, which are all being televised, clubs will be hoping for packed out bars over the Spring Bank Holiday.

Throw in the added attraction of some quality league and cup club cricket and you have the recipe for an enthralling weekend of sport.
