LORD Ian Botham, the most famous names in the history of English and world cricket, is coming to Oswestry in the spring for a talk.

Lord Botham, considered the country's greatest all-rounder, will be at Oswestry Cricket Club entertaining fans at Morda Road for 'An Evening With...' on Friday, April 21.

A spokesman for the event said it promises to be a night to remember with the former Sky commentator set to tell some of his most explosive and hilarious stories.

They said: "The former all-rounder will share stories from his famous career, including the legendary 1981 Ashes series, captaining England and his colourful behaviour on and off the field.

"‘Beefy’, now 67, has since raised millions of pounds for charity and is a member of the House of Lords after being made a life peer by then-prime minister Boris Johnson in 2020.

"He played 102 Tests and 116 one-day internationals for England between 1977 and 1992, and was the country’s leading Test wicket taker until 2015, and was first to congratulate James Anderson when he overtook him."

Tickets for the ‘evening with’ at Morda Road cost £30 and go on sale to the general public on Monday, January 23, but Oswestry Cricket Club members can snap them up from Monday, January 16.
