Meeting 11 March 2020 - John Barclay

An acclaimed schoolboy cricketer, John Barclay made his Sussex debut in 1970, aged just sixteen. Two years later John joined the county as a promising all-rounder, going on to captain the side from 1981 to 1986. After retirement he managed the England team on two major overseas tours and became Director of Cricket and Coaching for the Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation, encouraging young people from less advantaged backgrounds to play and enjoy the game. To date, more than 200,000 youngsters have benefited from the scheme. John Barclay is President of the English Schools Cricket Association, President of the Cricket Society, and in 2009/10 served as President of the MCC. He is also the author of three books: The Appeal of the Championship, Lost in the Long Grass and his personal favourite, Life Beyond The Airing Cupboard - winner of the MCC and Cricket Society Book of the Year award.
