We are in Good Hands with Paul Nixon
The LCB is delighted to announce that Paul Nixon will be the after dinner speaker at our fifth OSCAs celebration dinner to be held on 19th July 2013 at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford.
Paul Nixon played as wicket-keeper and left-handed batsman for Leicestershire, England, England A, MCC and Kent. He announced that he would play his final game of professional cricket at Grace Road against Kent on 6 August 2011 in a T20 quarter final, which meant that should Leicestershire beat Kent and get into finals day he would play. Leicestershire got into finals day, having had to achieve their highest ever T20 chase of 203 in 20 overs, which they managed in 19.2 overs, with Nixon scoring 31 runs from 17 deliveries. Leicestershire then went on to win the competition; firstly beating our own Lancashire (we have not hard feelings!) in a super over eliminator, then beating Somerset by 18 runs in the final, meaning that Paul got the fairytale end to his career.
He has many stories after a career spanning 23 years behind the stumps where he was always regarded as a vibrant contributor. He will bring some of that vibrancy to the stage where he will share some quite interesting tales, both cricket and non-cricket lovers will enjoy.
Paul will be joined by Roger Dakin as Master of Ceremonies who has presented numerous award ceremonies and spoken at many functions.
Come and join us on 19th July, for details of tickets and sponsorship packages please contact Dave Hardman on 0161 718 2899 or [email protected].
