Matthew attended an Evening with Sir Ian Botham OBE on 6 June. Hosted at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, the evening was host to a wonderful event.

Celebrating and honouring the spectacular achievements of his friend 'Beefy', Matthew thoroughly enjoyed the evening and was delighted to see such a wonderful event taking place to honour the cricketer.

Matthew has high hopes for the Leicestershire County Cricket Clubs chances of winning their next Yorkshire Bank 40-over League game.

Being played this Sunday (2 June) at Grace Road, the team will be taking on the Middlesex Panthers at 1.45pm.

Tune in to see the Leicestershire County Cricket Club playing cricket this Sunday, 26 May 2013.

Matthew is captain of the Leicestershire team and is confident the team will be victorious. The game commences at 1.45 at Grace Road against Somerset and is part of the Yorkshire Bank 40-over League; Matthew has every faith in his team.

Coming back strong after his injury, Matthew is pleased with the way he played in the Second XI Trophy, Glamorgan v Leicestershire game. Matthew took 1-26 on his return, but victory was prevented for the Leicestershire Cricket Club due to the match being rained off just after 16.30. This resulted in both teams taking one point each for the match.

Matthew is excited to be back in training for Leicestershire County Cricket Club's next match against Northamptonshire.

With the match taking place at Wantage Road on Wednesday 15 May at 11am, the team are preparing for the exciting game.

With more games drawn or won than they have lost, the team are hitting the season hard and with great success.
