Aldwick Cricket Club’s fundraising campaign following their recent fire continues with a visit from former England cricket star Matthew Hoggard on Friday, May 12.

With a glittering career that included 280 wickets in 93 appearances for England, a 2005 Ashes-winning role and being named a Wisden cricketer of the year for 2006, he brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise – and plenty of colourful cricket tales.

The evening takes place at the Riverside Park, Shripney Road, Bognor, with doors opening at 6.30pm.

There will be a variety of auction items available such as a signed Gray Nicolls bat, a Dunamis size six bat and a Rocks FC season ticket. Entertainment includes a Michael Buble tribute act.

Proceeds will go to help build Aldwick’s new clubhouse and equipment needed to help the club continue to grow and attract new players now and in the future.

To book tickets, email aldwickcc@hotmail.com or call John Young on 07918 566846.
