Nottinghamshire middle-order batsman entertains packed audience in pavilion with amusing stories
Former England star of the 1970s and 1980s Derek Randall was the guest speaker at March Town Cricket Club’s 33rd annual dinner on Friday night.
Derek entertained a packed audience in the pavilion with some amusing stories about his playing career with England and Nottinghamshire.
The middle-order batsman recalled his memorable score of 174 in the 1977 Centenary Test against Australia’s fearsome paceman Dennis Lillee, touring days with England in the sub continent and the many great players he played with and against over two decades.
Randall played 47 Tests and 49 One Day International matches for England and was a superb fielder in the covers.
Derek was making his sixth visit to the club having played three games for Suffolk against Cambridgeshire in the 1990’s and twice in benefit matches against March in 1988 and 1992.
March Town Cricket Club’s annual meeting will be held in the Pavilion on Tuesday, January 22, at 8pm.
