Welcome, Freddie

Elaine and I are absolutely delighted to announce the safe arrival of a bouncing baby cricketer boy, Freddie Ernest David Blagden, into the world. He looked set for a long stay but Elaine finally managed to get him out at 9.37am on December 23rd.

He already has his first book, the Ladybird Story of Cricket (thanks to Graeme and Sara), and his first bat (signed by Trescothick, Langer and Caddick):

Needless to say we are absolutely delighted and hopefully we’ll have him opening the batting very soon.
