Current first class umpire and former Leicestershire player, David Millns, will be the guest speaker when Worcestershire Cricket Society stage their final winter evening of 2022-2023 next Monday (March 13).

The date has been changed twice due to Millns work commitments and the evening will take place in the Graeme Hick Pavilion with the usual 7.30pm start time.

Millns was part of the Leicestershire side, which won the County Championship in 1996 and 1998.

He began and ended his career with his native Nottinghamshire but it was at Grace Road where he enjoyed considerable success.

His debut season for Leicestershire in 1991 produced 63 first class wickets, including a career best 9-37 against Derbyshire at Derby.

A further 74 wickets followed in 1992, and Millns continued to be a prolific wicket-taker for Leicestershire with 76 in 1994, and then 73 and 424 runs as part of the Championship-winning side two years later.

Millns ended his career with 553 first class wickets at an average of 27.35 and 89 in List A cricket.

In 2008, Millns was promoted to the first class umpires list and has been a highly respected official ever since.

Non-Society members can attend for an admission charge of £5.
