Ryan Gough - Compere - Birmingham, West Midlands Event Location: Derby - Spondon Cricket Club Event Type: Private social club 6th April 2024
Ryan came back to Spondon Cricket Club after the success of last year’s event … this year was even bigger and better !! A great bloke for starters - but as a compere he warmed up the crowd with great energy and quick wit!!
