Worcestershire skipper Daryl Mitchell is staging a trio of functions in the next fortnight as part of his 2016 benefit year.

New Road will be the venue this Friday (July 29) for 'The Time Of Their Lives' in which ex players will recall some of the golden eras at New Road including Norman Gifford, Steve Rhodes and Phil Neale.

The event gets underway at 8pm and tickets are £8 in advance and £10 on the night.

New Road will also host a 'Theme Night' on Friday, August 12 combining music from Laura McFee and Wilf’s Carnival Band and comedy from Frankie Peoples and Freddie Farrell.

The Worcestershire players will be waiters for the evening, serving a delicious two-course Indian feast (non-Indian and vegetarian options are available).

The evening will get underway at 7.30pm and tickets are £25 per person.

Two days later (Sunday, August 14) a pie and pint night will take part at the King Charles House, Worcester.

Players from Worcestershire and Glamorgan will take part in a Q&A session followed by a friendly sports quiz.

This gets underway at 7.30pm and the price is £20 per person.
