Horton to speak at LCS meeting

The Leicestershire Cricket Society (LCS) are holding their next meeting on Thursday, January 11 with Leicestershire CCC batsman Paul Horton the guest speaker for the event.

Horton has a vast amount of experience in the professional game, playing 191 first-class games, as well as 107 List A and 82 T20 games in his career so far. Horton returned to the Fischer County Ground in November as part of the winter training programme.
