Australian Wanted In Woodhall Spa

Wednesday 22 December
11.00-11.30am BBC RADIO 4

Chris Ledgard explores the tradition of overseas cricketers playing for amateur clubs in the backwaters of Britain, which has resulted in some noble names in obscure places.

Adverts such as "Australian wanted for Woodhall Spa Cricket Club" can be found on any number of English cricket club websites. All over England, small cricket clubs welcome foreign players for the summer season, committing themselves to supporting the players, with work or accommodation, on the understanding that they will bring a sparkle to the score sheet.

This documentary follows one such exchange at Potterne cricket club in Wiltshire.

Chris meets Zimbabwean cricketer Dylan Higgins, who has come to this quintessentially English village club direct from Harare. The team captain is Graham Gaiger, who runs the construction company that provides Dylan with a job. The programme explores whether the incoming sporting hero will meet the expectations of the club.
