CHRIS Rushworth will lead a Durham side against an NYSD select on Thursday evening.

The Durham stalwart takes a side to Park Drive, Hartlepool, as part of his testimonial year.

Durham are without a game this week, they are next in action at Sussex on Monday, and head coach James Franklin is likely to send a strong side.

Before the Twenty20 game, Rushworth will lead a coaching session for juniors involving a number of the Durham squad.

Proceeds from the evening will support the Professional Cricketers’ Trust, the Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust and the Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Entry is £3 adults and £1 concessions.
