Join us, and Matthew Hoggard
Matthew Hoggard MBE is one of the most successful international cricketers to have played for England. He began his professional playing career at his home county of Yorkshire in 1996 and remained there until 2009 when he became Captain for Leicestershire County Cricket Club. Notably Matthew was a key member of England’s bowling attack that helped win the epic 2005 Ashes series and has been a model of consistency throughout his test and ODI career, representing his country on no less than 93 occasions.
In September 2013, Matthew announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, bringing a successful 17-year career to an end. Impressively heralded statically by BBC Sport as England’s Great Test Bowler.
Matthew is still very much involved with cricket as a qualified cricket coach and rising star in the media as a cricket pundit for a variety of networks including the BBC, Sky Sports and BT Sport.
