Pat Murphy Makes Return Visit As Cricket Society Guest Speaker

Pat Murphy Makes Return Visit As Cricket Society Guest Speaker

BBC sports journalist and author Patrick Murphy will make a return visit to New Road as the guest speaker of the Worcestershire Cricket Society next Tuesday (February 10) in the Graeme Hick Pavilion (7.30pm start).

Murphy has been reporting on cricket and football for the BBC for more than 40 years.

He has covered many England cricket tours all around the world and and is now often heard on Radio Five Live giving his expert analysis on the international side during the summer months.

During the winter months Murphy is predominantly the BBC's midlands soccer reporter and is highly respected amongst his peers for not being afraid to ask the pertinent questions of the day.

As an author, he has written over 40 books – the last of which was an updated version of 'The Centurions – from Grace to Ramprakash' and includes chapters on Worcestershire pair Glenn Turner and Graeme Hick who both scored 100 first class hundreds.

Murphy has also written several books with a Worcestershire CCC connection stretching back to Basil D'Oliveira's 'Time To Declare.' Other books include 'Hick N'Dilley Circus', 'Botham', 'Phil Neale – A Double Life' and 'Graeme Hick – My Early Life.'

Non Cricket Society members are welcome to attend on Tuesday for an admission fee of £3.
