A 100-year-old tradition will be revived next week when the Army takes on the Royal Navy in their centenary fixture at Lord's on July 29.

The first fixture between the two services took place at Lord's in 1908, and in honour of the centenary the MCC has invited the teams back for a one-off match, starting at 11am and expected to finish at around 6.30pm.

Tickets for the game will be £10 for adults and £5 for children and are available from the Secretaries of the Royal Navy Cricket Club, Army Cricket Association or on the gate.

The day's entertainment will include a military band as well as a visit from the Red Devils parachute display team, and a collection will be made during the day for the Help for Heroes charity.
