Flintoff bats for armed forces charity
Cricket fans in Shropshire will get to see a sneak preview of Andrew Flintoff’s comeback from injury on Sunday, when he takes part in a charity cricket match in Ludlow to raise money for the Armed Forces charity, Help for Heroes.
Flintoff intends to be back playing county cricket by the end of July, following knee surgery last summer, but this will be a far more gentle work-out - featuring two former England players-turned-journalists, Vic Marks and Derek Pringle; Boysie and Marleen from Only Fools and Horses; and the Harry Potter actress, Imelda Staunton.
