(Say Cheese) & Onions

On my way home from the airport after returning from Belfast on Thursday morning, I received a phone call from a PR agency asking if I was available to work that evening. The job involved England cricketer Graham Onions, who was giving a surprise visit to Hawk Green Cricket Club in Marple, just outside Stockport, in a bid to help them prepare for their upcoming fixture against the Natwest England Legends, a team comprising of former internationals such as Michael Vaughan, Adam Hollioake and Dominic Cork.

The pictures were to be used in the local press in a bid to drum up interest and maximise ticket sales for the event a few days later. The lads there were all extremely welcoming, and enjoyed their coaching session with one of England’s finest bowlers…
