Cricket Society of Scotland
From The Cricket Society of Scotland
The Cricket Society has released their winter programme for 2012/13.
At a time when the future and structure of county cricket seem to have been consigned to an afterthought, relegated to the “Big Issues” of central contracts, marketing, Twenty/20 exposure, and servicing the demands of the game further afield, the programme for this winter may be seen as having something of a reassuring look to it.
Our guest speakers cover the current game from the playing, umpiring and administrative angles, and also include two talks from the historical and broadcasting perspectives side of cricket. We are grateful to be able to hear from Keith Oliver and Roddy Smith on Scottish cricket, and hope that some current local players may come to that meeting to hear what they have to say – and perhaps to ask a question or two! I understand that Mark Chilton may be bringing his guitar, although members will be relieved to hear that your Chairman will not be accompanying him by playing his own guitar!
I hope you will find this an interesting list of speakers and I look forward to welcoming you for another season.
The speakers for the season (all at The Grange) are:
15th January - Paul Horton, Lancashire opening batsman (Q & A)
12th February - Mark Chilton, ex-Lancashire captain, Head of Cricket Manchester Grammar School
12th March - Buffet Dinner – Neil Bainton, ex-postman, now Umpire
The Glasgow meetings take place on the evening (Monday) before the Edinburgh meeting.
