Knight Brothers Celebrate BEM in Queens New Year's Honour's List


In the New Year’s announcement of the Queen’s honours list British Empire Medals were awarded to Dave and Mike Knight from Newport Cricket Club for their services to cricket.

In this interview we hear more about how the brothers (along with many others) built up Newport CC from what was perceived as a low point in 1990 to the present days’ success.

Listen in to hear more about their memories and advice for other clubs, which includes: -

  • their best moments of volunteering, best player they have seen perform at Newport (there are quite a few!),
  • how they responded to first hearing the honour, how they would encourage others to get as involved in volunteering,
  • How good is Mike Clayden as a player?
  • What’s their favourite ground in Wales outside Newport?
  • Their proudest moment of achievement with the club?
  • And finally, their funniest moments in cricket?

So, please click this link or watch below and share in the recognition that the award has bestowed on them both.
