Abrahams Is Guest Speaker At New Road

Abrahams Is Guest Speaker At New Road

England Under-19 manager John Abrahams will be the guest speaker at the Worcestershire Cricket Society's final meeting of the winter in the Graeme Hick Pavilion at New Road this evening.

Former Lancashire player Abrahams was at the helm during the recent ICC Under-19 World Cup in the UAE which featured Worcestershire duo Ed Barnard and Joe Clarke.

The pair helped England to reach the last four, including a memorable win over holders India, before losing to Pakistan.

Middle order batsman Barnard and wicket-keeper Clarke, both aged 18, have already signed full cntracts for the 2015 season with the county. They will serve summer scholarships this season.

The Cricket Society were forced to cancel last month's meeting because of the floods but there are no such problems regarding this evening which gets underway at 7.30pm.
