Lifetime commitment for George

First published in Sport

BURGHILL’s star bowler Ben George said he wants to stay at the club “for life” after moving from Kington at the beginning of last season.

George has taken 30 wickets so far this season and took another five wickets in the weekend’s game against Coombs Wood.

He said: “I’m bowling good line and length at the moment.”

He also said that if they keep playing the way they are promotion could be a real possibility.

He said: “It was a great result away at Bewdley last week – promotion is possible if we keep playing like we are.”

George came to Burghill after former team mate Owen Morgan convinced him to make the switch.

George said: “I used to play cricket with Owen (Morgan) at Kington and then he wanted me to come over.

“He wanted me to come over three years ago but I had just been made captain at Kington.”

Captain Owen Morgan is pleased George finally joined them last season and is pleased with his form.

Morgan said: “Last year was his first season and he was just settling in.

“I used to play with Ben a lot at Kington and he’s a good bowler.”
