GLOVES worn by new England captain Kevin Pietersen are just one of the items up for grabs at the yearly Hatfield Hyde charity event.

The WGC-based club will be hosting their annual charity 6-a-side cricket tournament, The Oliver Mills Trophy, to raise money for The Teenage Cancer Trust on Sunday, August 24.

Last year Hyde raised around £3,000, split between the club and charity, and are hoping to do better this time around.

As well as the main trophy, there will also be a colts event running, with teams from Welwyn Garden City, St Margaretsbury, Datchworth, Shenley and St Albans all hopefully participating.

The competition will begin at 10.30am at Hyde's home ground on King George V Playing Fields.

There will also be a bouncy castle, barbecue and stalls.

In the evening, there is set to be a charity auction, with items such as Pietersen's gloves which he wore during his 152 innings against South Africa, tickets to a One-Day International, a signed bat by the England team from the Lord's Test against New Zealand and many more.

After the auction there will be a disco in the clubhouse.
