The Bat & Ball, 25th March 2023
Members and Friends of Broadfhalfpenny Brigands are invited to first The Hambledon Club lunch of 2023.
The lunch will be full of cricket followers and takes place at the Bat & Ball and the speaker is Huw Turbervill, the editor of The Cricketer Magazine. He joined the magazine in 2015 after 15 years at the Telegraph and was a sidekick for Scyld Berry of the Telegraph on several Tours.
Huw is the author of ‘The Toughest Tour: The Ashes Away Series Since the War’, ‘The Cricketer’s Anthology of the Ashes’ and ‘The Greatest Ashes Tests’.
He captained Woodbridge CC in the 1990s for five years, earning a couple of run-outs for Suffolk 2nds. He now opens the batting for Beddington 4ths in Surrey. According to Huw, there was no way he was out when run out by Mike Gatting in a charity match.
Huw turned out with his son at Broadhalpenny Down on New Year's Day 2022 in the match that began the 250th celebration of the first First-class game.
The lunch costs £29.95 and places are limited; if anyone would like to attend please contact Lyndia Allen <email@example.com>
