South African Captain wants to help cricket in Cork & Ireland

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Graeme Smith, captain of the South Africian cricket team, was in Cork this week discussing cricket with Brian Crowley MEP.

“Now that Graeme has a home here in Cork and spends a lot of time here, we discussed ways he can be supportive to Cork and Irish Cricket in the years ahead” said Brian Crowley MEP.

Over recent weeks, Graeme Smith led South Africa to the top cricket test team spot in the world, after beating England, and he is now very much one of the most sought after cricket

personalities in the world. Graeme and his cork wife, singer Morgan Deane, also had their first child Cadence, christened in Cork this week.

“My father and uncle played cricket at the Cork Cricket Club many years ago, and it is great that a world superstar like Graeme is willing to get involved now, especially at a time when the Irish cricket team is doing so well” added Brian Crowley.
