Lord Botham OBE at OCC

22 Apr 2023

Last night saw a packed Oswestry Cricket Club treated to a wonderful Q&A session with Lord Botham OBE. During the first half of the session, he described how he went from nearly signing for Crystal Palace to instead playing for Sommerset with Sir Vivian Richards for the first time at Bath, and then running through his illustrious career including of course his Ashes heroics.

Following a short break, the audience were told of his role as a UK Trade Ambassador to Australia, his passion for, and business interests in wine, Shane Warnes golfing exploits and of course his amazing work for Charity.

It was an incredible night, one to be cherished by all that attended.

The Club would like to sincerely thank Mark Ball, for both organizing and comparing the evening, in addition to arranging the golf day that was held with Lord Botham during the day at Llanymynech GC – Great job Mark!!

We would also like to thank Croft and Oaks, the main sponsors of the evening, our Club Captain Steve Humphreys for his auctioneering skills , his brother Darron for coming close to nearly winning all the auction prizes, without raising a hand, and of course the amazing bar team led by Nia Morris who kept everyone hydrated during the night.
