Westbury welcome Coney
WESTBURY on Severn Cricket Club will be celebrating their exploits on the field this season with a presentation dinner and have secured a prestigious guest, TMS commentator and former New Zealand captain Jeremy Coney MBE.
Coney was an organised and correct batsman, a steady medium-pacer and a fine fielder, who became an exceptionally astute captain.
He further enhanced his reputation by leading New Zealand to a first series win in England, in 1986, endearing himself by his sunny disposition.
He was awarded an MBE in 1986, and has since become a successful and respected TV and radio commentator.
It will be very interesting to hear his perspective on New Zealand’s loss in this year’s World Cup.
Tickets for the event are priced at £35 for adults and £20 for guests 17 or under and in full time education.
The evening takes place at Westbury Parish Hall on Friday October 4, with a three course meal being served from 7.15pm.
