Carter And Pearson Guests At First Cricket Society Meeting

Carter And Pearson Guests At First Cricket Society Meeting

The Worcestershire Cricket Society will stage their first meeting of the 2014-2015 winter programme in the Graeme Hick Pavilion tomorrow evening (Tuesday) from 7.30pm.

Former players Bob Carter and Derek Pearson, who between them took more than 700 first class wickets for the county, will be first on the bill.

A mixture of current and former players and various authors will be entertaining the Cricket Society members on the second Tuesday of each month from October through to March.

Worcestershire CCC website editor John Curtis will present a light hearted quiz evening on November 11 comprising questions on sport, music and general knowledge amongst others.

Gary Sobers six sixes for Nottinghamshire against Glamorgan in 1968 will be recalled by author Grahame Lloyd and John Parkin – the batsman at the non striker's end – on December 9.

Lloyd wrote a superb book on that famous over entitled 'Six Of The Best.' Mince pies will also be served that evening.

A current Worcestershire CCC player will give his thoughts at the January 13 meeting.

The following month author and Radio Five Live's Patrick Murphy will make a return visit (February 10).

The winter programme will end with a visit from Isabelle Duncan, author of 'Skirting The Boundary' – a history of women's cricket.

For anyone wishing to join the Worcestershire Cricket Society, the membership fee is £15 for one person and £20 for a double membership or you can pay £3 for each evening as a non-member.
