Guerilla speaks to Andrew Cornish, CEO Middlesex CEO

May 5, 2022

Founded in 1864 and resident at Lords since 1877, we are going to focus here on Middlesex.

11 times County Champions, the club has a proud history of developing many of the game’s greatest known cricketers, including the likes of Denis Compton, Mike Gatting, John Emburey and Andrew Strauss to name but a few and this tradition continues to the modern day, with a very exciting group of young talent coming through like Robbie White, Ethan Bamber and Luke Holman.

The CEO of Middlesex is Andrew Cornish. Listen here as Andrew tells @tonybishop1 about the steps the club is taking to broaden the member base, inspire participation in the game, increase inclusivity and diversity of team and fans and lay foundations for the long-term success of Middlesex and the game as a whole. And, as Middlesex fans will be happy to hear, win silverware along the way.

Who is the oldest of our First-Class Counties? Surrey? Middlesex? Lancashire? Yorkshire? It’s none of those. Founded in 1839, it is Sussex.

Three times county County Champions, their illustrious history boasts the likes of CB Fry, David Shepherd, Ted Dexter, Tony Greig, Ranjitsinghi, Maurice Tate and John Snow. Now, they are promoting some young and exciting talent like Tom Haines, Tom Clarke and Archie Lenham and blending that with the likes of Stephen Finn and new arrivals Cheteshwar Pujara and Mohammad Riswan.

The CEO of Sussex is a familiar sporting name. Rob Andrew. Listen here, as Rob tells @tonybishop1 about Sussex’s plans to inspire cricket across the county, to promote and support young talent and to support the Sussex cricket community.

Leicestershire CEO @SeanMJarvis is a man on a mission to grow not just the size, but also the range and diversity of the County’s membership and fan base. Leicestershire are a proud county. 3 times county champions, 3 times T20 champions and 3 times Benson and Hedges Cup Winners.

 

Yet when England get battered in a Test Series, there are those who point an accusing figure towards our first - class County game. Some would even question the status of Counties at all.  So, it’s a tough brief, especially when you are not based at a ‘Test Match’ Ground.

 

Here, Sean tells @tonybishop1 about Leicestershire’s partnership with the Cricket Supporters Association, #CountyTogether and a broad ranging action plan to and to attract new fans to the County.

 

A tough brief it may be, but it’s one Sean is tackling with commitment, determination and no little humour. If you are a @leicsccc follower or just a lover of the game, Sean’s passion and enthusiasm are inspiring. Listen here and let us know what you think.

Botham, Richards, Garner, Trescothik, Caddick, Gimlett, White, Bess, Leach, Rogers, Close, Gayle, Azam. Just a few names that have graced the County Ground in Taunton and home of Somerset.  They have a beautiful ground in the South West of England and a reputation since 1875 for playing a dashing and exciting brand of cricket. Certainly, well before anyone would have used the phrase ‘brand of cricket’.

Their fan base is passionate, loyal and care deeply for their beloved county.

Listen here as Gordon Hollins, Somerset CEO, tells @tonybishop1 how they have navigated through the pandemic and have a long-term plan for success and growth, starting with filling that one large gap in their trophy cabinet at the earliest possible opportunity. Taunton may not a ‘Test Match Ground’ but it does stage international cricket. It also represents a broad area of this country’s cricket community and Gordon is looking to expand that further ensuring the future health of the club and its community.

February 15, 2022

There are huge challenges in our national game at the moment. Test results have been poor and the very structure of our UK domestic game is under scrutiny from the grass roots upwards.  In this environment of question and concern, our counties need to be making the game as accessible, attractive and effective as they can. The Cricket Supporters Association exists to represent the interest of fans to the governors of our game and recently they have been working with the Lancashire Action Group @lancscccaction, a passionate and vocal group of Red Rose fans who want to ensure that the voice of Lancashire fans is heard and represented by their County. Their Co-founder is Ian Lomax@mctownie1 and here he discusses with @tonybishop1 the group’s objectives, their CSA partnership and the deep concerns regarding their own county.

Guerilla talks Gladstone Small about his memories of 86/87 Ashes

Inside the Tour - The Ashes 1986/87 is the definitive story of an extraordinary tour, featuring many of those who were part of it, including tales of rum, wine, fancy dress and Elton John.  Gladstone Small may not have played in the first three tests, but he certainly made an impact at the MCG, taking seven Australian wickets to help win the Ashes for England and the Man of the Match Award for himself.

Here in conversation with @tonybishop1, the ever-engaging Gladstone recalls that match and how Ashes history was changed forever by the unlikely intervention of Sir Elton.

Guerilla talks to Chris Broad about the 86/87 Ashes tour

Guerilla talks to Chris Broad about the 86/87 Ashes tour

December 5, 2021

Inside the Tour - The Ashes 1986/87 is the definitive story of an extraordinary tour, featuring many of those who were part of it, including tales of rum, wine, fancy dress and Elton John.  There were certainly some larger-than-life personalities on both sides including Sir Ian Botham, Alan Lamb and David Gower to name but three for England.  Chris Broad may not have been in that bon viveur category, but he let his bat do the talking and became Man of the Series. Along the way, he became only the third Englishman after Jack Hobbs and Wally Hammond to three score hundreds in consecutive Ashes matches. Here Chris recalls with Tony Bishop the cricket and the distractions for the team that proved, despite a famous claim to the contrary, that they actually could bat, bowl and field.
