New Zealand star Taylor to celebrate Wanderers 100th anniversary

Kiwi superstar Ross Taylor will be returning to Norfolk now that his international duties have been completed – to help Wanderers celebrate their 100th anniversary.

Taylor, who played for the club in 2004, will join in celebrations on Sunday, including handing out prizes at the County Under-15s final, between Wanderers and Swardeston, in the morning. He will then be running a junior coaching session in the afternoon, between 1pm and 3pm, followed by a Q&A session.

Local historian and cricket lover, Stephen Musk, has written a centenary and he, Taylor and coach Gareth Hopkins will all be signing copies.

'It will be great to have him back,' said club stalwart. 'Even when he was playing for us he was clearly a very talented player, probably the best who has ever played in Norfolk.

'It is a great way to help celebrate our centenary and we also have this impressive book available. It covers 100 fantastic years and has some fascinating insights into the club –including the fact that we have had more than 100 players who have represented the county and eight international players have appeared for us. We are extremely proud of our history and we really do have something to celebrate.'
