Sporting Luncheon with John Holder ex Test Umpire
Join the LCCC Foundation at the LCCC v Hampshire YB40 fixture when they have their second Sporting Luncheon of the summer featuring one of cricket’s great characters in former test umpire John Holder.
Beginning his career as a brisk right arm medium pace bowler for Hampshire in 1968, he took 139 first class wickets before becoming a first class umpire in 1983 and was promoted to officiate in his first test match in 1988.
John is credited along with Don Oslear, with the idea of a ‘bowl out’ to decide a drawn match after the Tilcon Trophy final had been washed out by rain. The idea was subsequently adopted into all England and Wales Cricket Board competitions.
We look forward to sky sports commentator John Gwynne getting the best stories from our special guest of the day John Holder.
A great price for a great day out – the price includes an excellent two course meal – and a match ticket!
The Point, Emirates Old Trafford
Tuesday 20th August - 12.30pm for 1pm lunch
Tickets just: £27.50
