Boycott's 100th Hundred - The 40th Anniversary Tour
6th October, Bramall Lane, Sheffield
The Greatest Living Yorkshireman is coming to Bramall Lane... for a special evening of stories and anecdotes.
To mark the 40th anniversary of his century of first class hundreds the outspoken Yorkshire and England cricket personality Geoffrey Boycott OBE - now a Test Match Special summariser - will be in conversation with Look North presenter Harry Gration.
It promises to be a fabulous evening with 'Boycs' recalling with the help of film footage the magical moment when he lit up Headingley with his 100th century; memories of playing at the Lane when it was a cricket ground and why Blades fan Joe Root will be good for England.
"I will talk about anything to do with cricket and say what I think," said Geoffrey. "It could be an interesting and long night!"
He will be sharing memorable highlights including footage of his debut, his first century, the first day-night game and talk about how co-commentator Jonathan 'Aggers' Agnew recently pranked him live on national radio over his century of centuries declaring: 'Well you've done me a few times but that's the biggest one! You've done me easy haven't you, like a kipper."
The evening will feature hilarious rambles of Geoffrey's career and there will be an opportunity for the audience to put their own questions to the man himself.
Tickets priced at £25, are now available for the event which takes place on 6th October in the Platinum Suite, Bramall Lane. Doors open at 7pm. There is a VIP meet and greet, at a cost of £75, which includes a photo with Geoffrey and an exclusive champagne reception.

Opening the innings for England, in August 1977, Boycott scored 191 against Australia in the fourth Test in front of a full house at Headingley, becoming the first cricketer to score his one hundredth first-class century in a Test match. Boycott became the fourth English player to be on the field for the entire duration of a Test. And he ended the series with 442 runs at an average of 147.33
