We hosted an entertaining Euro 2012 Big Screen Event in partnership with Warwickshire County Cricket Club at Edgbaston Stadium on Friday 15 June 2012, which started at 1.30pm.
The event featured a lunchtime Question and Answer session with a legend from each of the four Midlands Football Clubs; Alan McInally (Aston Villa), Steve Bull (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Tony ‘Bomber’ Brown (West Bromwich Albion) and Jeff Kenna (Birmingham City). BRMB Radio’s Tom Ross hosted the Q & A which included some fantastic stories and some good natured banter between the four guests.
Guests also enjoyed a three course lunch and a Q & A with Warwickshire County Cricket Club’s Captain, Jim Troughton and bowlers, Neil Carter and Stefan Piolet.
The Friends Life Twenty 20 Cricket match between Warwickshire and Worcestershire unfortunately got rained off, but guests enjoyed the other match from England’s group, with France taking on Ukraine, before enjoying the main feature on the two giant screens of England v Sweden.
England took the lead through Andy Carroll, before Sweden went 2-1 in front with two goals from Mellberg. Theo Walcott then came off the bench though and inspired an England comeback by equalising and then setting up Danny Welbeck for a third, to clinch a thrilling 3-2 victory! The match rounded off an enjoyable day for all guests.
