BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Vaughan leads England legends against local XI

England legends take on local XI

They have graced the finest cricket stadia all over the world, played for England against the greatest players and come out on top.

So for the players of Hawk Green 1st XI from Marple, it might have been something of a dream to have a bowl at Michael Vaughan or face a Devon Malcolm delivery.

But on a sunny evening in Cheshire, Vaughan, joined by an England legends team including Malcolm, Neil Fairbrother and Adam Hollioake amongst others, turned out to take on Hawk Green's finest on their own turf.

Having done a coaching session with the club's youngsters and a Q&A session the England Legends were put into bat first in this Twenty20 encounter, one of three matches the legends have scheduled in order to raise funds for grass roots cricket.

Vaughan fell for 17 as the home side made an encouraging start with the ball but the form of Mal Loye, who top-scored for England Legends with 117, ensured the visitors set a tough mark of 194.

It was a target which, despite Justin Blackhurst's impressive 88, proved to be too much for the Derbyshire and Cheshire League outfit, who could only make 165 in 20 overs to leave the legends once again victorious. Scorecard.
