A Question of Sport to visit One Call Stadium!

27 September 2017

Join us for an evening of sporting trivia on Thursday 05 October as teams led by Stags' boss Steve Evans and Nottinghamshire cricketer Samit Patel go head-to-head in A Question of Sport!

Patel's team of Notts' all-rounder Steven Mullaney and former cricketer Paul Franks will face manager Steve Evans and his team in a sports quiz based on the popular TV show.

Nottinghamshire and former England cricketer Samit Patel is in his testimonial year for 15 years' service at Trent Bridge and he is raising money for the PCA Benevolent Fund, The Broad Appeal and the Trent Bridge Community Trust.

The Benevolent Fund is part of the Professional Cricketers' Association's commitment to helping former and current players and their dependants in times of hardship and upheaval, or to readjust to the world beyond the game.

The Broad Appeal is fronted by England bowler Stuart Broad and his father Chris, who also represented England, as Chris' wife and Stuart's step-mother Michelle suffered from Motor Neurone Disease. For more information on the appeal, please visit thebroadappeal.org.

Trent Bridge Community Trust's mission is, quite simply, to provide a sporting chance to disadvantaged young people in Nottinghamshire. For more information on the services they provide, please visit: www.trentbridge.co.uk/trust/

Jo Belton, of Samit Patel's Testimonial committee, said the Notts' spinner was keen to bring an event to the north of the county.

"A lot of cricketing events are based in the City of Nottingham but Samit really wanted to encompass the county as a whole," Ms Belton said.

"A Question of Sport should be a great evening for anyone interested in sport."

Tickets for the event, which begins at 7.00pm, are priced at £20 per person and includes a pie and peas supper.
