Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan will be special guest at an event in Nantwich.

The Yorkshireman, 40, has agreed to be the speaker at a Nantwich Cricket Club fundraising dinner in July.

It’s a real coup for the club, and tickets for the event at Nantwich Civic Hall are set to go on sale.

Manchester-born Vaughan, who led England to the famous Ashes victory over Australia in 2005, now has a successful broadcast career as a popular pundit and summariser on test cricket.

He is not afraid to speak his mind, and holds strong views on topical issues on the game, most recently the demise of England at the recent World Cup, the row over Kevin Pietersen’s England career, the appointment of Andrew Strauss.

Vaughan stepped down as England captain in 2008 and retired from the first class game in 2009.

Rob Sproston, of Nantwich CC, said: “This is a real coup to bring Michael to Nantwich. We have our vice chairman Andrew Newton to thank!”

The fundraising dinner will take place on Thursday July 2.

Tickets are £37.50, which includes a three-course meal. All welcome.
