CRICKETER Michael Vaughan heads the line-up at a dinner in Huddersfield later this month.
The former England and Yorkshire skipper is guest speaker at the annual dinner of the Huddersfield Society of Chartered Accountants, which place on Thursday, March 25, at the Galpharm Stadium.
Michael (pictured) began playing professional cricket at the age of 17 and made his Test debut for England in 1999. The following year, he scored his first Test century against Pakistan.
He was appointed captain of England in 2003 – the same year in which he was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year and reached the top of the world rankings.
In 2005, Michael captained the team that reclaimed the Ashes in an historic series against Australia and he was awarded the OBE. His final total of 26 wins makes him the most successful England test captain of all time.
The batting order for the annual dinner also includes businessman and former Huddersfield Town chairman Graham Leslie.
Members of Black Dyke Band will also take part with soprano Sarah Ogden and Black Dyke’s principal conductor and musical director Dr Nicholas Childs.
Andrew Rogers, president of the society, said: “The line-up for the evening will provide a feast of entertainment. I am looking forward to renewing acquaintance with many friends and colleagues.
“The society’s dinner is always of a very high standard and offers professionals in the Huddersfield area a chance to meet and discuss current issues in a relaxed and convivial environment.”
