Worcestershire Cricket Society have decided to postpone next week’s cricket evening with Fred Rumsey at Blackfinch New Road.

Fred, a former Worcestershire CCC paceman and founder of the Professional Cricketers’ Association, had been scheduled to speak on Tuesday, March 3 in the Graeme Hick Pavilion.

But, given the current inclement weather sweeping across the county and flooding, the Society have taken an early decision to call off next week’s event.

Worcestershire Cricket Society Secretary, Mike Hitchings, said: “We thought it was sensible to decide now to postpone the March 3 meeting given the extreme weather and flooding.

“We are hoping to re-arrange for Fred to speak to the Society at a later date and will keep members updated when there is any news.”
