CRICKET SOCIETY FRED RUMSEY MEETING RESCHEDULED FOR MARCH 24

Worcestershire Cricket Society have announced a new date for their final cricket evening of the winter with Fred Rumsey.

It will take place in the Graeme Hick Pavilion at Blackfinch New Road on Tuesday, March 24 (7.30pm start).

The evening with former Worcestershire, Somerset and Derbyshire paceman Rumsey, the founder of the Professional Cricketers’ Association, was originally scheduled for next Tuesday (March 3).

But the Society took an early decision to postpone from that date because of the current flooding across the county including at Blackfinch New Road.

Rumsey will be interviewed by author Stephen Chalke who has written many books including ‘Summer’s Crown – The Story Of Cricket’s County Championship.’

Cricket Society secretary Mike Hitchings said: “A big thank you to Worcestershire for being able to accommodate our re-scheduled date.”

It is intended by Rumsey and Chalke to film the evening and place a small extract on the ‘Youtube’ channel.

Rumsey’s own autobiography ‘Sense Of Humour, Sense Of Justice’ was published last April.
