Christmas Gents Lunch Club With Micky Stewart, OBE

We were delighted to welcome, Micky Stewart, OBE as our host. Micky was an English former cricketer, coach and administrator. A right-handed batsman, his international career was hampered by illness that curtailed his first overseas tour.
His domestic career for Surrey spanned eighteen years, in which he scored over 26,000 first class runs with forty-nine centuries. He made a century on debut for his county, against Pakistan, and went on to break the then-world record number of catches in a match in 1957 with his strong fielding. He captained Surrey between 1963 and 1972, winning the County Championship in 1971. After retiring, he became a manager at the club and later for England until 1992. He then worked for the ECB until 1997.
Micky who was introduced to us by his friend and our resident, Jack Ball was a perfect host with hilarious anecdotes that kept the 26 gents in attendance riveted!
We also included our ever famous free raffle with a much anticipated prize of a plastic blow up toupee to end the year’s theme on best hair for gents much to alls merriment and won by one of our full headed guests!
A five course Christmas lunch was served with Signature Christmas crackers. Pudding was not allowed unless the gents wore their cracker hats.
Out of the seven gentlemen guests another one has committed to paying a membership fee to move in in 2017 “I’ve seen many other options, but I’ve never enjoyed myself so much or got on so well with others around me!”
