Former England captain and legendary broadcaster David Gower OBE will be the special guest speaker at this year’s opening season lunch, which will take place at Emerald Headingley on Wednesday 1st April.

Gower will share stories from his time in cricket, which has seen a stellar career stretching 117 Test matches for his country, followed by an 18-year career in broadcasting.

Widely regarded as one of the finest voices in sports broadcasting, the veteran of 18 Test hundreds hung up his microphone for the final time at the end of last summer’s Ashes series at the Oval and is sure to entertain with stories about his travels around the world.
