Nunwick Cricket Club Sportsman’s Dinner

 On Friday night, David Allen had 2 tables at my local cricket club’s , Nunwick, sportsman’s dinner.
Myself, Kevin Batty, Derek Baty, Michael Peile and Steve Balmer invited 14 guests to the Roundthorn Hotel in penrith for a three course meal followed by entertainment from Geoff Miller the guest speaker and Austin Knight the comedian for the night along with a raffle and games of heads and tails and stand up bingo.

Geoff Miller is the current chairman of selectors for the England Cricket team and was also a test player himself, having played in the same team as Ian Botham. He gave a thoroughly entertaining talk about his career as a cricketer and was good entertainment.

Following Geoff Miller was the Comedian Austin Knight, who had everyone laughing with his jokes.

The night was very successful with the club making over £3000 for its funds and everyone having an enjoyable evening.
