Annual Dinner & Presentation


Cedar Court Hotel
Ainley Top
Huddersfield. HD3 3RH

Friday 9th November 2018 - 6.15pm for 6.45pm.

This year our League is extremely pleased to welcome as our Guest speakers at the Annual Dinner and Prize Presentation, former Leicestershire & England cricketer, and current Leicestershire Head coach, PAUL NIXON, who will be ably supported by comedian and impressionist MIKE MAGUIRE.

A wicket keeper and left handed batsman, Paul Nixon made his first-class debut with Leicestershire in 1989 winning two Championship titles with the county in 1996 and 1998. He played for the club until 2000 when he decided to move to Kent. He spent 2 years playing for Kent where he was part of the Pro40 title winning team, before returning to Leicestershire in 2003. Nixon went on to captain Leicestershire between 2007 and 2008 and appeared in five T20 Finals Days for the Foxes, including the wins of 2004, 2006 and 2011. He scored 19,418 runs and claimed 1,231 dismissals for Leicestershire in 714 appearances across all three formats. In January 2007 he made his international debut in a T20 match against Australia, and three days later he made the first of 19 ODI appearances for England. Since his retirement from playing in August 2011, Paul has worked successfully as a coach, winning the Caribbean Premier League twice in three attempts with Jamaica Tallawahs, and is currently Head coach of Leicestershire, a position he has held since October 2017.

Mike Maguire has taken the comedy circuit by storm. He has already appeared on national television where his act has earned him rave reviews from his live audiences. Mike is vastly experienced on the live comedy stage, firstly in the comedy clubs and more recently on the After Dinner Circuit. He is as much at home in the Voice Over studio as he is appearing on television for Sky Sports, London Weekend, Granada and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night takeaway. He is such a versatile act, and is guaranteed to be a hit at almost any venue, and we look forward to him performing at our Annual Dinner & Prize Presentation this year.

Once again we are happy to announce that the ticket price for the evening is £32.50.

A pro-forma is attached in order for you to request numbers, and please note that according to rule, each member club must purchase a minimum of 4 tickets. This pro-forma should be returned to me by either email or post - both addresses above, by no later than Friday 12th October 2018.

PLEASE NOTE: The latest date for cancellations will be Friday 2nd November 2018. After this time clubs will be responsible for the purchase of all ordered tickets. Individual awards will only be presented to those prize winners in attendance in person on the Evening.
