Former Derbyshire all-rounder James Graham-Brown will be guest speaker at the Derbyshire Cricket Society lunch on Thursday 28 February.

Graham-Brown represented England at Under 19 level in 1969 and 1970 before joining Kent in 1971. He was part of Kent’s winning Gillette Cup side in 1974, taking 2-15 off 12 overs in the final against Lancashire.

He spent six years with Kent before moving to Derbyshire in 1977 where he stayed for two seasons. He then retired from professional cricket but carried on playing Minor Counties cricket for Cornwall until 1984 and Dorset from 1989 until 1991.

In his post-playing career, James Graham-Brown  became a Headteacher at two independent schools, whilst he also wrote over 20 plays.

Two of his most recent plays have cricketing themes, When the Eye has Gone and The Long Walk Back, based on the lives of Colin Milburn and Chris Lewis respectively.

His great uncle, Lionel Blaxland, also played for Derbyshire throughout the 1930s.

He will speak at this month’s Derbyshire Cricket Society lunch event, held in the Kappture Legends Lounge on the top floor of the Air IT Elite Performance Centre.

The deadline for booking is Thursday 21 February.
