The Huntingdonshire Cricket Board annual dinner will take place a fortnight later than initially planned - all because the England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive Tom Harrison could not meet the original date.
The bash will now be staged at Wood Green, Godmanchester on Friday, November 20 (7pm arrival for a 7.30pm start) with Harrison on hand to speak and dish out prizes.
Hunts Cricket Board office administrator Jo King said: “Tom was due to be in Sharjah where England will be playing the third Test against Pakistan on our original date so we had to do a quick reshuffle and he was good enough to agree to attend on a different date.
“We are very grateful for his willingness to switch dates, but he is known to be a passionate supporter of all levels of the game.”
Harrison also has strong connections to this area. He was born in Peterborough and played locally for Tucker Gardner League and Hunts League club Nassington before going on to enjoy a first-class career with Derbyshire.
He is now one of the most influential men in world cricket after previously working for the international sports marketing agency, IMG, where he was Head of Cricket - a post which involved broadcasting and sponsorship deals all over the world.
Tickets for the dinner are priced at £30 which includes a three course meal and coffee.
They are available by downloading an application form from www.huntingdonshirecricket.com/ or by calling 01487 773926.
