Following the MCC match against the 1st XI on College Field, a drinks reception was held in the Long Room of the Howell Pavilion on Thursday 23 June, before the annual cricket dinner in the Christopher Kirk-Greene function rooms.
The guest speaker at the dinner was Roger Knight, who played for Surrey, Gloucestershire and Sussex. He also taught modern languages at the College for two terms a year from 1970 to 1978, leaving the summers free to pursue cricket.
He was MCC Secretary from 1994 to 2000, then MCC Chief Executive from 2000 to 2006. He is an Honorary Life Member of the MCC and was President of the club from 2015 to 2016.
Roger has recently published his autobiography, Boundaries, and he entertained the guests with reminiscences of his cricketing and teaching life.
