9:00am Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
MP Greg Mulholland has written to both David Cameron and Nick Clegg inviting them to attend a cricket match at Headingley Carnegie Stadium during Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s 150th anniversary year Mr Mulholland’s letters follow David Cameron’s admission that despite being an avid fan of the sport he had not yet watched a single match at Headingley Stadium.
Mr Mulholland said: “Nobody can deny after watching England’s awesome performance at the Ashes that cricket isn’t one of the nation’s favourite sports.
“Yorkshire is a county passionate about great cricket and I think it’s high time the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister visited the famous Headingley Stadium.”
