Corporate Cricketers Ready for Edgbaston Final
Twenty two members of the West Midlands business community are preparing for the biggest cricket match of their careers after teams from Savills and the Phoenix Group confirmed their place at the world famous Edgbaston Stadium for the Final of the Warwickshire Taverners Trophy.
Taking place on Tuesday 24th September, 19 corporate teams have done battle throughout the summer to take part in the Final at Edgbaston, which will take place alongside the launch of an annual cricket networking event in the Club’s Committee Room.
Trevor Law, Organiser of the Warwickshire Taverners Trophy, said: “This year’s Warwickshire Taverners Trophy has been the biggest event yet and we’ve seen some fantastic cricket played in the qualifying stages at Moseley Ashfield CC’s Britannic Park ground.
“The opportunity for an amateur cricketer to play at Edgbaston is a huge incentive to all teams that have taken part in this year’s tournament. We thank Edgbaston for this opportunity as well as the support of our sponsors, Investec and Keith Prowse hospitality for making it such a great event.”
The Final of the Warwickshire Taverners Trophy starts at 4pm and Edgbaston is opening its Members’ Lounge to team supporters, with the VIP networking event taking place next door in the Committee room
Craig Flindall, Finance Director at Edgbaston, said: “As well as giving local cricketers a chance to play at one of the world’s most famous cricket grounds, we hope the networking event will become a fixture in the annual calendar to showcase both the stadium and the great work of the Lord’s Taverners.
“This will be the second time that we’ve held the tournament Final and, with Savills and the Phoenix Group qualifying for the first time, we’re looking forward to another great day at Edgbaston.”
