East Riding Cricket Society - 2019/20 Programme

Alan Butcher - March 2019
A packed house enjoyed a superb evening with March speaker Alan Butcher [left]. Great stories, sharp analysis and an all-action replay of a Michael Holding over - terrific stuff! Thanks also to Alan, fellow speakers and members and friends old and new for a memorable winter. Among many other highlights: Malcolm Nash - on his 'Six Sixes' duel with Garry Sobers; Chris Lewis - from World Cup Final to prison cell; Mark Robinson OBE - on the challenges of coaching elite women's sport; Steve Patterson - on his pride in the YCCC captaincy and plans for his new, young team; Pat Murphy - on a kaleidoscope of names from fifty years in journalism and broadcasting.
