My Life in Cricket with Will Greenwood
The former rugby player and member of England's 2003 World Cup-winning side talks to Warren Hegg about growing up playing cricket in Lancashire
A member of England's famous 2003 Rugby World Cup winning side, Will Greenwood's other sporting love was cricket.
Growing up near Clitheroe, Greenwood was a regular at Longridge Cricket Club and even played for Lancashire Schoolboys as a youngster, lining up alongside John Crawley and Ronnie Irani.
His sporting talents took him on a memorable path and the crowning glory of Rugby World Cup victory, but Greenwood remains a passionate and avid follower of cricket.
In an exclusive chat with Warren Hegg, Greenwood talks about:
- His Uncle, former Lancashire player and coach John Savage, getting him into the game
- Memories of a trial match at Emirates Old Trafford
- Playing alongside John Crawley and Ronnie Irani for the Lancashire Schoolboys
- Hitting Peter Kippax for six in a match against the MCC at Sedbergh School
- Following Lancashire as a supporter in his younger years
- His greatest sporting regret - not scoring a century
Greenwood also gives an insight into the World Cup winning dressing room - and how beating Garstang with Longridge in the Lancashire Cricket League rivals the winning the Webb Ellis Cup!
