An Hour with Mike Brearley; Cambridge, 19th October

Reed Cricket Club Members, Below is information about an event in which you might be interested. This is not a Reed CC event, but as cricket enthusiasts you might wish to know about it. Do not try to book a place through me. Book direct at mikebrearley.eventbrite.co.uk, or by ‘phoning Heffers Bookshop on 01223 463200 or in person at Heffers Bookshop, 20, Trinity Street, Cambridge, CB2 1TY. PGB ************************************************************************* Friday 19th October, 12.30pm at the Queen’s Building, Emmanuel College: An Hour with Mike Brearley. Calling all cricket fans! Legendary England captain Mike Brearley is returning to Cambridge - and Heffers invites you to spend an hour in his company. Mike Brearley OBE was educated at Cambridge, reading Classics and Moral Sciences. He captained England from 1977 to 1980 and was recalled to the captaincy in 1981 for the Ashes Home series - one of their most famous victories. Since retiring from cricket he trained as a psychoanalyst, and is a lecturer on leadership and motivation. He is the author of the best-selling The Art of Captaincy, and has written on cricket and the psychology of sport for the Observer and The Times. In his new collection of essays, On Cricket, Brearley has gone through pieces he has written over the past four decades, elaborating on many of them, cutting or adding, according to his second thoughts presenting to the reader something that is more holistic, more synoptic, from distance and old age. Tickets for the event are priced at £8 in advance or £10 on the door and can be purchased through mikebrearley.eventbrite.co.uk, by calling 01223 463200 or in person at Heffers bookshop.

Jug Night!

Celebrate those personal performances with your club mates. The bar will be open all evening for a good knees up. Think of all those match-changing moments that you should have bought a jug for - but did not / forgot to / hadn't any money / don't believe in it / left before getting collared / too young to buy alcohol, (delete as appropriate). Tons, fifties, 5-fors, multi-catches, stumpings or run-outs in an innings, man-of-the-match awards. Everyone will be welcome and the season hasn't even ended yet!
